Subcommittee Hearing: The Future of Property Rights in Cuba

Thursday, 18 June 2015 17:31

On Thursday, June 18, the House Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere held a hearing titled “The Future of Property Rights in Cuba.” Two panels composed of former counsel members of the Foreign Claims Settlement Commission and multiple certified claimants testified including Mauricio Tamargo, former Chairman of the Foreign Claims Settlement Commission:

"There are reports about serious talks in the making between the United States and Cuba regarding the certified American claims. But we should remain guarded and concerned that this will not materialize or that negotiations will not reach a settlement of these claims. The Administration is priming the pump with a number of goodwill gestures and gifts to Cuba in order to get the conversation started, but historically, before these sort of favorable US actions are taken, there is, at least, an outline of an agreement for settling certified claims.”
