The Government formalized the payment with bonds for the co-participation to CABA

The Government today formalized the decision to transfer TX31 bonds to the city of Buenos Aires as a form of payment of the co-participation funds, within the framework of the precautionary measure of the Supreme Court in which it raises the mass of funds destined to the district by 2.95%, while the Buenos Aires management filed a criminal complaint against officials of the National Executive who did not comply with the ruling. The Court ordered last Wednesday an increase in the co-participable mass in favor of the city of Buenos Aires (CABA), in the framework of the dispute between the two governments for the funds for the transfer of the police in 2016. In this context, President Alberto Fernández last Thursday released a statement in which he called the ruling of the CSJN “political” and “impossible to comply” and announced that he would recuse the judges and present a challenge “in extremis.” But then on Monday, he announced the decision to comply with the precautionary measure through the use of public securities, and reaffirmed the decision to move forward with the presentation of the appeal against the decision of the highest court, as well as to challenge its members, a measure that was concretized today through two writings that bear the signature of the Treasury Attorney (head of the State lawyers).
