Interest for arbitrary US sanction against Cuba
Havana, (Prensa Latina) Thousands of Prensa Latina readers showed interest in the new attack by the United States against the Cuban economy, when sanctions were leveled against the Havin Bank, the only entity established exclusively with Cuban capital based in London.
According to an internal agency record, the announcement of the new U.S. aggression became one of the most read news since then.
The unilateral measure was published on the Treasury Department website, specifying that the bank is included in the list of special designations of the Office of Foreign Assets Control.
The Havin Bank has been operating since August 1973 and its main shareholder is the Central Bank of Cuba. Headquartered in the British capital, it has a network of 400 correspondents worldwide.
This measure joins others, such as prohibitions on travel to Cuba by US citizens and the entry of cruise ships to the country, as well as measures against shipping companies that transfer oil to Cuba.
As part of the tightening of Washington sanctions against Cuba, more than 200 Cuban companies were included in that 'black list' of the US State Department.
The measures are part of the intensification of the economic, commercial and financial blockade undertaken by the Donald Trump administration.
