WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott released the following statement ahead of action by the Administration to fully implement Title III and Title IV of the Libertad Act. This action would allow American citizens to sue companies and their subsidiaries for trafficking in stolen properties, and deny entry to the United States to foreign nationals involved in the trafficking of stolen properties in Cuba.

Senator Rick Scott said, “The Administration’s plan to fully and immediately implement Title III and IV of the Libertad Act signals to the international community that the United States is serious about its commitment to freedom and democracy in Cuba. Allowing American citizens to sue for stolen property in Cuba and denying foreign nationals involved in trafficking stolen property entry into the United States is a huge step toward cutting off the money supply to the Castro Regime. It is clear that where we see instability, chaos and violence in Latin America, we also see the fingerprints of the Castro regime and their money – and this action by the administration is an important step in stabilizing the entire region.

“President Trump’s strong action on the Libertad Act will further hold the Cuban regime accountable. I urge him to continue with the planned implementation this month so we can help begin a new day of freedom and democracy for Cuba and its people.
