Spain's Hypocrisy

Tuesday, November 20, 2012
For over two decades, Spanish companies -- with the blessing of both socialist and center-right Spanish governments -- have been trafficking in illegally confiscated properties in Cuba.

To this day, U.S. Presidents -- both Democrats and Republicans -- have waived Title III of the 1996 Cuban Liberty and Democratic Solidarity Act ("Helms-Burton"), which allows suits in U.S. courts against foreign companies that traffic in illegally confiscated properties in Cuba, due to the European Union's threat of retaliatory action.

Yet now Spain is on the receiving end in Argentina and what do they do?

Spain court considers Repsol lawsuit against Chevron: source

A Spanish court has agreed to consider a lawsuit by Repsol against U.S.-based Chevron Corp. over its cooperation agreement with Argentina's YPF, a source with knowledge of the matter said on Monday.

Repsol had threatened legal action against companies that invest in YPF after Argentina seized control of the Spanish firm's majority stake in the energy company in April.
