The Florida Bar plans to arrange another trip to Cuba for attorneys
in the upcoming months. They hope to focus this trip exclusively on
attending meetings and open discussions with officials on the island
regarding current legal issues, a transitional government and politics
which is exactly what Steve Hagen, George Harper, Steven Harper and
James Meyer did when they traveled separately to Cuba on the Florida
Bar’s first trip. They met with various professionals and legal scholars
and engaged in a series of professional meetings with lawyers,
government officials and dissidents to exchange ideas on the
normalization of relations between the U.S. and Cuba. James Meyer said
he went to test U.S. and Cuban travel policies. He stated: “I wanted to
experiment with the Cuban government to see if they would let us in to
do business meetings and to see how OFAC (the Office of Foreign Assets
Control) would respond.”
