Pari passu, the cross-sovereign contamination

Some excerpts from a lawsuit filed by the Export-Import Bank of China (Taipei) against Grenada in a United States district court on March 4, 2013…
If you have been following the pari passu saga on ratable payment of sovereign debt — they tell their own story. (Click to enlarge all images.)
1.) Ex-Im Bank already has a judgement on $32m of debt defaulted on by Grenada.
2.) The loan debt had a pari passu clause, and negative pledge language.
3.) Let’s just spell that last bit out, as cited by Ex-Im Bank.
According to their plain language, the pari passu clauses preclude Grenada from making a ratable payment to a holder of External Indebtedness without making a ratable payment at the same time to Ex-Im Bank.
4.) Ex-Im Bank stayed out of Grenada’s 2005 debt restructuring.
5.) It has been watching Grenada pay the people who did restructure.
6.) Bank of New York handled some of that dough. Bank of New York lives in New York.
7.) Ex-Im Bank is now coming after these payments to Grenada’s restructured bondholders. (Hello, intercreditor consequences of ratable payment.)
8.) And Ex-Im Bank’s citing equity.
They didn’t even wait for a final Second Circuit ruling on Argentina making ratable payments to its holdouts. (Why should they, actually? The implications of ratable payment are arguably clear.)
Incidentally observe point 1) there, that Ex-Im Bank is exploring this avenue having already won judgement against Grenada. (The story of their dispute is a long one.)
The $1.3bn of claims involved in NML’s pari passu litigation against Argentina were not judgement debts. Nevertheless. EM Ltd, which holds a prior judgement against Argentina, said (in a pro-holdout amicus brief) that while “the District Court has not yet been asked to address whether the Equal Treatment Provision can be used to enforce an existing judgment,” EM Ltd “believes that the Equal Treatment Provision applies with identical force in the post-judgment context”.
And now we have crossed into new territory.
