Why did Facebook Block Account of Daughter of Raul Castro?

The social network website Facebook temporarily blocked the profile of Mariela Castro, daughter of the chairman of the State Council and the Council of Ministers of Cuba – Raul Castro. This was reported on by the Cuban Internet portal Cubadebate.

The reason for the freezing of the account was the publication of Mariela Castro bank account numbers to help the victims of the devastating hurricane Irma that hit Cuba in early September. This account was opened a few days ago by the Cuban Foreign Ministry.

As the portal notes, the profile was blocked for 24 hours due to the fact that Castro allegedly violated the rules of the social network. The publication with the account number was deleted.

“Facebook will now block all the Cuban media?” – the daughter of the Cuban leader wrote on her Twitter page, posting a link to the article of The Juventud Rebel about the opening of a charitable account.
