The U.S. May Deny Visas to Spanish Directors Sued by Trump's Law Against Cuba

| News | Cuban Desk

Ignacio Aparicio comments on article IV of the Helms-Burton law where one of the main concerns of multinationals exists in a report published by Vozpópuli

The Helms-Burton law, activated again after more than 20 years paralyzed by U.S. President Donald Trump to tighten the siege against the island of Cuba, not only affects foreign companies operating on the island, it goes beyond demanding compensation for operating with confiscated assets.

Ultimately, it allows the U.S. government to prevent the entry of all directors and majority shareholders whose companies have been sued or are in a legal battle as a result of the activation of the regulations into the country, as well as to freeze all the assets of such companies have in the United States.

Ignacio Aparicio, partner of Andersen Tax & Legal and director of the Cuban desk of the firm, states in the report that "what the law allows is to file a lawsuit for damages, there is not going to be a loss of land, but a claim for damages for trafficking in land whose owners are U.S. citizens."
