Government turns to court to order Ghana to release ship
BUENOS AIRES — Argentina will ask the International Sea Tribunal to order the release of a seized navy sailing ship in Ghana, the South American government said Monday.
The ARA Libertad training ship was seized Oct. 2 in the port of Tema as collateral for unpaid bonds dating from Argentina’s economic crisis a decade ago.
Foreign Minister Hector Timerman said if Ghana does not free the vessel by Tuesday, Argentina will appeal before the tribunal in Hamburg, Germany.
Argentina had warned Ghana that it would take the issue to the arbitrage court late last month following a U.N. convention on the rights of the sea, Mr. Timerman said.
It also asked the African country to immediately restore power and water services to the vessel.
Ghanaian port authorities shut off the water and electricity to the ship last week, when Argentina refused to let it be moved to a less-busy part of the port. Argentina’s sailors pulled out rifles to prevent Ghanaian officials from boarding the vessel to move it.
