Miami Judge awarded Cuban exile with U.S. $ 2 billion 800 million

24 August 2011

Two years ago another judge Gustavo Villoldo awarded more than $ 1 billion in damages. The latest compensation due to a different legal theory, which also takes into account the alleged attempts to Cuba to threaten and intimidate Villoldo in the decades that followed the takeover by Castro.

Andrew Hall’s lawyer said he intends to obtain funds using frozen Cuban assets in the U.S. and companies around the world related to Cuba. The Cuban government never responds to the demands and refused to comment on the case.

Villoldo took part then in the Bay of Pigs invasion, prepared by the CIA as well as the capture of guerrilla leader Ernesto Argentine “Che” Guevara
