Canadian investor devices novel strategy to fund its investment arbitration with Venezuela

Canadian mining company Crystallex, which is engaging in a legal battle with Venezuela over the treatment of its investments in Las Cristinas gold project has announced a novel strategy to fund the investment arbitration. Unable to finance its outstanding debts and the costs of arbitration consequent to measures adopted by Venezuela, Crystallex is issuing securities worth US$120 million linked to the proceeds of a future ICSID win against Venezuela.
