Spanish court fails in its attempt to stop U.S. court judgements against Cuba’s murderous Castro regime

Spain's infamously leftist courts failed miserably in their attempt to block a U.S. court judgement against Cuba's murderous Castro dictatorship. Beyond their sympathies with the Marxist dictatorship, Spanish courts no doubt have an interest in protecting the billions of dollars the country has invested in the island's repressive and brutal regime. Besides, as far as they are concerned, Cuba is still their colony and their property and if anyone is going to take billions from the Castros, it is going to be them.

Via Capitol Hill Cubans:

Spanish Bank Tries to Impede Judgments Against Cuban Regime

Spain's Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria, S.A., ("Banco Bilbao"), filed a motion in a Manhattan federal court seeking to block the families of various Cuban men, who were tortured and assassinated by the Castro regime, from collecting their successful "wrongful death" judgments.

Last Friday, U.S. District Judge Alvin Hellerstein rejected this effort by Banco Bilbao.

Apparently, Banco Bilbao -- one of the few European banks that still keeps a strong presence in Cuba -- felt that profit trumps justice.

They were wrong.

    If anyone should bend over backwards BIG time not to offend or screw over the Cuban people, it's the Spanish. Evidently, they couldn't care less.
