Cuba Smears Its American Victims: Owners of Property Stolen by Castro Were ‘Delinquents’

Cuba’s state newspaper Granma continued its campaign against the United States’ decision to allow Americans to sue companies who profit from companies using their stolen property this week, arguing in a column Wednesday that the communist theft of their properties was legal because it was a “sovereign” act and the true owners of the properties were “delinquents.”

This represents a change in policy following a civil rights lawsuit filed against the corporation.
