TheCubaBlog.com is reporting that two banks in Cuba have stopped foreign businesses from withdrawing or transfering funds.

The banks noted are Banco Financiero Internacional and Banco Metropolitano.

One Italian businessman said “they´ve blocked us sending transfers abroad and placed a 6 month window of time for these to be processed plus they´ve introduced a law that impedes our withdrawals of cash so basically they´ve confiscated our money and nobody does anything about it”.

Other businessmen in Cuba made similar comments.

There is also information about “restrictions” on foreign travel agencies that are requiring their customers to make payments directly to Cuban hotels and travel industry companies in Cuba.

Their article is more evidence about the cash crunch in Cuba.
