BERLIN – A United Nations court ordered the immediate release Saturday of an Argentine navy training ship seized by Ghana two months ago at the request of an American hedge fund.

The ARA Libertad was detained Oct. 2 in the port of Tema as collateral for unpaid bonds dating from Argentina’s economic crisis a decade ago. Argentina appealed to the U.N.’s International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea for the ship’s release, arguing that as a warship the Libertad is immune from being seized.
