MEXICO’S FEDERAL AUDIT DEMANDS PHYSICAL INSPECTION OF SOVEREIGN GOLD HOLDINGS HELD AT BOE!

*BREAKING
Guest Post, by Guillermo Barba

Today we have an exclusive note on this blog: the Mexican Superior Audit of the Federation (“ASF” in Spanish), in its Report of Supreme Audit Results of the 2011 Public Account” delivered last week to the Chamber of Deputies, gave a stern “recommendation” to the Bank of Mexico (Banxico) to audit the Bank of Mexico’s gold reserves held in London at the Bank of England.

The reason is one of the most important issues we have addressed here: the gold reserves of Mexico.
As you may recall, last year we informed that after four months of legal wrangling with Banxico, it was forced to give us the information about the supposed physical location of Mexico’s sovereign gold holdings.  In the disclosure, we discovered that 95 percent of the Mexican gold reserves (about 125 tonnes) were abroad, and almost all (99%), in London, England.The ASF has determined that Mexico should “make a physical inspection with the counterparty that has the gold under its custody, in order to be able to verify and validate its physical wholeness and thecompliance with the terms and conditions of dealing with this Asset…” It was verified by the ASF that this has never been done by Banxico.
Well, the ASF documented the purchase of 100 tonnes of gold that was made in 2011, for a total of 4,543 million dollars.
In its report, the ASF says that a confirmation of the operation was made with the counterparty, but also “found that Banxico has not conducted physical inspections to gold to verify compliance with the terms of acquisition and the conditions regarding its storage, in order to be certain of the physical custody of this asset.” Our emphasis.
Moreover, the central bank only has documents which establish the terms and conditions, the dates of the transactions and payment vouchers. That’s all.
In other words, Banxico invested 4.5 billion dollars and released the money without making any confirmation of the existence of the gold purchased, or of the location of the vaults where the gold bars were supposed to be held. Mere “paper gold”.
The ASF states that the Central Bank gave them some arguments on why they did not consider any verification as necessary, and assured them that the gold reserves were under the custody of “a prestigious financial institution”. It seems that Banxico has a “blind faith” regarding such an institution.
According to the report, the Bank of Mexico said that the metal seller “only” offers services to other central banks and monetary authorities, and “places gold in custody in a bank of the United Kingdom” who “sets strict standards for weight and purity which gold bars must meet, in order to be received  under custody.” Almost a religious act for Banxico.
In this blog it’s been documented that this custodian is none other than the famous Bank of England, which is supposed to provide its services on an “allocated basis”. That is, that customers have, or should have, a list of every ingot owned with serial number and stamped certifications of purity.
Banxico has none of these lists. Last year it could not answer a single question made by this journalist, through a legal “Request for Information”, about the number of bars that make up the Mexican gold reserves. The central bank only said that “due to the variability of the content of gold in the bars, it is not possible to specify with certainty the exact number of bars purchased.” Oops!
All this makes us wonder if Banxico is really complying with the mandate of Section I of Article 19 of the Bank of Mexico Act: that the reserve shall be composed of “The currencies and gold owned by the Central Bank, free of all liens and whose availability is not subject to any restriction”.
Is there no restriction on gold bullion that has not even been proved to exist? Isn´t Banxico breaking its own law?
The institution headed by Agustin Carstens wished to be excused for this irregularity, and reported that it is a common practice to perform such operations, and that an inspection such as that recommended by the ASF would have a“significant cost”.
Nevertheless, the ASF has insisted under its official “recommendation” number 11-0-98001-02-0154-01-001 (they made only two recommendations, and this was the first): Bank of Mexico should “make a physical inspection with the counterparty that has the gold under its custody, in order to be able to verify and validate its physical wholeness and thecompliance with the terms and conditions of dealing with this Asset…” It was verified by the ASF that this has never been done by Banxico.
No doubt. This is very delicate and Banxico has gotten into this problem unnecessarily.
Therefore it is important for Dr. Carstens to stop being evasive and decide not only to verify our gold but to order its complete repatriation to the country. It would not be the first nation to do so.
This is the very same story that Germany lived just months ago.
There, the German court of auditors (Bundesrechnungshof) demanded also in 2012 that the Bundesbank undertake an audit of its gold reserves.
By the way, a German parliamentarian, Philipp Missfelder, wished to inspect the German gold bars held at the N.Y. Fed, and the N.Y. Fed could not, or did not wish to, tell him which bars belonged to the Germans.
In Mexico we need to bring home all our gold. These ingots are national treasures and we should claim them as an act of sovereignty. There is no reason for them to remain abroad.
Instead of selling our golden reserves, as Banxico has been doing for several months now, it should take this buying opportunity to acquire much more. In this blog, we’ll be informing in the weeks to come if these gold bars have been located in our Mexican territory, England or NY.

Meanwhile, we have to remember that this global financial crisis is far from over, and that it is essential for us to have “in hand” the small gold shield we decided to buy. Not doing so means that we are unnecessarily exposed to expropriation and the real possibility of waking up tomorrow with a “hang over”, after a “dream of gold”.

Bankrun sur l’or physique – Egalite et Réconciliation

Bankrun sur l’or physique – Egalite et Réconciliation.

Après les Allemands, ce sont les Suisses qui veulent rapatrier leur Or … serait-ce le début de crash de la confiance Or-Monnaie imposée par le système bancaire et financier … ???!!

La Suisse s’apprêterait à rapatrier son or à son tour

Cette fois ci c’est la Suisse qui est concernée avec le mouvement « The Swiss Gold Initiative » lancé par 4 membres du parlement Suisse en mars 2012, mouvement qui exige le rapatriement de l’or détenu par la banque nationale Suisse (source).

90 000 personnes soutiennent ce mouvement, or dés qu’il atteindra 100 000 personnes, le parlement Suisse devra organiser un référendum.

Ce mouvement affirme que les Suisses devraient avoir le droit de donner leur avis sur 3 points :

- le fait de garder les stocks d’or de la nation en Suisse ;

- de pouvoir empêcher la banque nationale Suisse de vendre tout ou partie des réserves d’or du pays ;

- d’imposer à la banque nationale Suisse de détenir au minimum 20 % des réserves en or physique.

Pour le moment la banque nationale Suisse n’a pas souhaité révéler ou se situent les stocks d’or du pays mais ce mouvement, dès qu’il atteindra les 100 000 personnes, l’y obligera certainement.

Nous parlons ici de 1040 tonnes d’or physique…

Les États n’ont visiblement plus confiance dans les banques centrales (New York Fed et Banque centrale d’Angleterre), censées détenir l’or physique pour le compte de nombreux États.

On comprend pourquoi quand on s’aperçoit que l’Allemagne mettra 7 ans à récupérer de la FED de New York, de la Banque centrale d’Angleterre et la Banque de France, ce qui ne représente qu’une petite partie de la totalité de son stock d’or.

Comment est il possible que 7 ans soient nécessaire pour expédier le stock d’or de l’Allemagne ?

L’or n’y est peut être tout simplement plus, comme l’affirme le GATA, prêté aux banques d’affaires et vendu sur les marchés pour maintenir les cours sous pression et sauvegarder encore un temps la confiance dans le système monétaire d’argent « papier » non convertible.

Si l’or n’y est plus (tout ou partie) d’où viendra t-il ? Peut-être qu’un début de réponse se trouve dans l’intervention commune de la France et des USA au Mali, le pays d’Afrique le plus riche en or ? Timing troublant au demeurant…
