Trump tightens trade embargo on Cuba over aid to Venezuela, OKs suits
against firms using seized properties

HAVANA - The Trump administration announced Monday that it is
tightening the six-decade trade embargo on Cuba by allowing lawsuits
against Cuban companies using properties confiscated after its 1959
revolution.

The announcement limits lawsuits to a list of about 200 Cuban
businesses and government agencies that are already subject to special
U.S. sanctions because they are tied to the Cuban military and
intelligence ministries. Most of the businesses have no ties of any
sort to the U.S. legal or financial systems, meaning the ability to
sue them will almost certainly be symbolic.


Other businesses, like hotels, are joint ventures with foreign
companies, but it is does not appear that the Trump administration
measure allows the foreign companies themselves to be sued. That means
the new measure will likely have very little real-world impact.
