Crystallex seeks to attach shares of Venezuela PDVSA holding firm: document

CARACAS, Aug 15 (Reuters) - Canadian mining company Crystallex has asked a court for an order to attach shares in Venezuelan state oil company PDVSA’s Delaware subsidiary that owns U.S. refiner Citgo, according to a court document filed on Monday and seen by Reuters on Tuesday.

Crystallex is seeking to collect some $1.4 billion in damages associated with late socialist leader Hugo Chavez’s nationalization of the Las Cristinas gold mine.

PDVSA did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment. (Reporting by Brian Ellsworth)
