"The Trump administration will no longer suspend Title III of the Libertad Act," U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said on Wednesday, ONA reports citing Department State's website.
Pompeo has said that it will be effective from 2nd of May.
"Implementing Title III in full means a chance at justice for Cuban Americans who have long sought relief for Fidel Castro and his lackeys seizing property without compensation. For the first time, claimants will be able to bring lawsuits against persons trafficking in property that was confiscated by the Cuban regime. Any person or company doing business in Cuba should heed this announcement."
"In addition to being newly vulnerable to lawsuits, they could be abetting the Cuban regime’s abuses of its own people. Those doing business in Cuba should fully investigate whether they are connected to property stolen in service of a failed communist experiment. I encourage our friends and allies alike to likewise follow our lead and stand with the Cuban people."
"The Trump administration is committed to helping grow the wave of democracy, good governments, and openness, which is steadily building throughout the entire Western Hemisphere," Pompeo said.
Note that the Helms-Burton Act, also known as the Libertad Act, groups together all of the U.S. economic sanctions against Cuba and has been in effect since 1996.
Ending the Helms-Burton waiver would allow U.S. citizens to sue individuals and companies – including European citizens and businesses -- in U.S. courts for commercial use of property they once owned but that was seized by the Cuban government after 1959.
