(AP) A Ghanaian court rules against releasing an Argentine naval vessel which is currently being held at Tema Port near here.


The commercial court ruled Thursday that the ARA Libertad should be prevented from leaving because of action against the Argentine state by creditors in the United States.


The court earlier ordered the seizure of the Argentine tall sailing ship at Tema harbor following judgments against Argentina issued by the United States District Court and supported by similar court rulings in the United Kingdom.


Justice Richard Agyei-Frimpong said Thursday that Argentina had not shown why the injunction on the ship should be set aside. The judge upheld his earlier ruling to restrain the ship, which came to Ghana on a goodwill mission as part of a West African tour.
