Italba Corporation (“Italba”) alleges that Uruguay’s telecommunications regulator, URSEC, failed to issue Italba’s local subsidiary Trigosul an updated license to operate in certain frequencies, and that after wrongly revoking Trigosul’s license, URSEC later failed to comply with an Uruguayan court judgment reversing the revocation. Italba alleges violations of Article 3 (national treatment), Article 4 (most-favored-nation treatment), Article 5 (minimum standard of treatment), and Article 6 (expropriation) of the U.S.-Uruguay Bilateral Investment Treaty.
