I wouldn't claim apple to be blameless for anything - except, in this case, they were making a business deal with a sovereign nation and if this violates the rules to which that nation agreed to then they're the ones who committed the violation - perhaps the whole island should be walled up and put in prison for fraud?

No one twisted anyone's arm to offer a the deal in violation of any law. They could have remained on the up-and-up easily enough. They were greedy and wanted the deal - well now it's time to pay back some of the money they made from having the company there.

That's worth repeating: well now it's time to pay back some of the money they made from having the company there. because they didn't do it out of charity - they thought to make so money on this.

It's just typical EU budget balancing at the expense of US corporations.
