Cuban Americans condemn new US sanctions

Washington, June 8 (Prensa Latina) The Donald Trump government´s decision to once anew extend the list of Cuban entities restricted to US citizens is strongly rejected by Cuban Americans.

The financial institution Fincimex, Marques de Cardenas de Montehermoso, Regis and Playa Paraiso Hotels, Varadero Diving Center, and Gaviota Las Molas International Diving Center and Cayo Naranjo Dolphinarium will be included -with more than 200 entities and sub-entities- in the controversial list.

In a statement released by the US State Department, the inclusion of Fincimex in the list was highlighted, which would further affect the remittances to Cuba, as it is the Western Union’s counterpart in Cuba.

Every worthy Cuban who loves his homeland must strongly condemn the latest sanctions announced by the US government, said Elena Freyre, president of the Foundation for the Normalization of United States / Cuba Relations (FORNORM), referring to this new movement of the Trump administration.

Speaking to Prensa Latina News Agency, Freyre stated that the inclusion of Fincimex in the list puts the possibility of remittances to Cuban family members in jeopardy, since this is the financial means used by Western Union and other shipping cards to Cuba.

Freyre said it was a cruelty and violation of human rights to deny the Cuban people to receive what is necessary, amind a pandemic situation.

‘It is another proof that the United States government is not interested in the well-being of my people,’ Freyre said.
