Can ‘Dealmaker’ Trump Resolve the Decades-Old Cuba Property Claims Problem?

PDF Print

In 1959, as the Castro regime took control of Cuba, they nationalized all property owned by Americans on the island. This remains one of the largest uncompensated confiscations of American owned properties in U.S. history. Resolution of the claims which arose out of those expropriations remains a major obstacle towards normalizing relations with Cuba.

Though the Obama administration announced the renewal of diplomatic relations, and held approximately 4 meetings with the Cuban government to discuss a claims resolution, little to no progress was made towards reaching a settlement. As a new administration takes shape in the White House, many claimants have renewed hope that a deal may be coming in the near future.

‘Trump Will Treat Cuba Like the Dictatorship It Is’

Tuesday, 11 April 2017 15:16

Trump  RubioTwo months ago, the Trump administration announced a total review of US-Cuba policy. Though there have been several proposals circulating Capitol Hill, it is still unclear as to which direction the new Administration will take in dealing with the Cuban government. 

Little has been said over the past months by the Trump team concerning Cuba, and it seems an official policy will not be clear until several key positions are filled at the State Department and other agencies. Florida Senator Marco Rubio has advocated for a tougher policy towards Cuba and has held at least 3 meetings with the President on the matter. In an article by The Miami Herald, Rubio stated, “I am confident that President Trump will treat Cuba like the dictatorship it is and that our policy going forward will reflect the fact that it is not in the national interest of the United States for us to be doing business with the Cuban military.”

LaPrensa ArticleJason Poblete was recently interviewed by one of the oldest newspapers in Nicaragua, La Prensa, about the importance of strong and transparent legal systems to help strengthen democracy.

When asked about the role of the Organization of American States (OAS) in dealing with problems in Nicaragua, Poblete stressed that the most effective advocates for rule of law are in Nicaragua, not in international organizations; however, the OAS could have a constructive role in the process but reforms of the inter-American system are long overdue.
