CLAIMS AGAINST CUBA

On December 17, 2014, the President issued a statement announcing significant changes to the United States Government’s policies regarding Cuba.  Subsequently, on July 1, 2015, the President issued a statement announcing that the United States has agreed to formally re-establish diplomatic relations with the Government of Cuba and re-open embassies in the respective countries.  Thereafter, on December 8, 2015, the United States and Cuba held the first government-to-government claims discussion in Havana to exchange information on a wide variety of claims, including claims of U.S. nationals that were certified by the Commission in its Cuba claims programs.

It is not yet clear what effect such changes will have on the status of the claims previously adjudicated by the Commission.  While the Commission is not responsible for these policy changes, information regarding pertinent developments will be posted in the “News” section of the Commission’s website, http://www.justice.gov/fcsc.
