“22.08.86 Charles Redman, State Department official, said in a statement that the President [Ronald W. Reagan] had adopted a number of measures aimed at making the ‘embargo’ on Cuba more effective, arguing that such measures would make it more difficult for the Cuban government to get U.S. dollars and goods by illegal means. Among the measures adopted by the President are: a crackdown on firms identified by the U.S. government as ‘Cuban from companies’ based in Panama and elsewhere trying to violate the American trade embargo; tigher controls on entities organizing or promoting trips to Cuba, and on money remittances and sending goods to Cuba.” [Pro Embargo]
