“18.04.92 President [George H. W.] Bush, in a public statement, instructed the Department of the Treasury to further tighten maritime transportation of people and goods to and from Cuba, through regulations prohibiting entry into American ports to third-country vessels engaged in trade with Cuba. This measure was a predecessor to the regulations that were later established by the Torricelly Act. Additionally, it instructs the Treasury Department to start the licensing process to authorize the sending of humanitarian packages aboard ‘charter’ flights from Miami to Havana.” [Pro Embargo]
