The U.S. administration has advised a Jamaica-based resort company that its senior executives won’t be allowed into the U.S. because the company has invested in property confiscated from Americans in Cuba, the Wall Street Journal said.

The notification was sent to Superclubs, a chain with properties throughout the Caribbean, the Journal said, citing an unidentified U.S. official. Visas would be denied to top executives, shareholders, their spouses and children effective 45 days after the date on the letters.

Efforts to reach a Superclubs spokeswoman in Jamaica were unsuccessful, the paper said.

The provision, included in the Helms-Burton law, has been only rarely applied, the Journal said. The Bush administration two weeks ago said it would aggressively apply the law to weaken the government of Fidel Castro, the Journal said.
