HAVANA, Nov 20 (ACN) As an act of war disguised as an act of law under the Helms-Burton law, a Cuban expert described the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States against Cuba, when he addressed the 2019 International Congress Abogacia 2019.
During the lecture "The Helms-Burton: war of demands", issued at the opening of the event, held at the Havana´s Convention Center; PhD. Rodolfo Davalos stated that within the economic war carried out against Cuba by successive American administrations there is also a judicial war.
The Helms-Burton act is the most complete product of the U.S. blockade against Cuba from its own extraterritorial character, with which we are witnessing the use of the law as a means to achieve a purpose, it is a non-conventional legal war and more mediatic, Davalos said.
In front of more than a thousand professionals, the outstanding professor of law at the University of Havana stressed that with this policy, applied for more than 50 years, the American government is hindering the normal development of trade and economic relations between other countries and Cuba, in flagrant violation of international law.
Representatives from some 20 countries, including Argentina, Spain, Venezuela and Costa Rica, will attend Abogacia 2019 to discuss issues related to conflict resolution and international negotiations as channels for business development, among others.
