EU court rejects investor calls for PSI compensation

The General Court of the European Union said on Thursday that the European Central Bank does not have to compensate private holders of Greece’s sovereign debt who were forced to take losses during the country’s 2012 international bailout.

Some investors were seeking compensation for the haircut they were forced to accept during Greece’s second bailout, which was accepted by most holders of Greek bonds.

They wanted the ECB to reimburse them because the central bank had not opposed the Greek law that authorized the haircut, but the EU court said the ECB had acted lawfully and rejected their claims.
