Sheraton saves on fine by not allowing meeting with Cubans
The Mexico City Sheraton will save $544,000 in fines for taking action and not allowing a scheduled meeting to occur at their facility between Cuban officials and American energy businessmen. The fine by the US Treasurey Department would have been $1 million. Mexico will fine Sheraton $466,000 for applying U.S. law within their territory.
