Austria: more “secret gold repatriation” coming???

by Jeff Nielson, Bullion Bulls Canada For months; there have been rumblings out of Austria that it, too, was interested in “getting its gold back”. Now its official; the government has made a request. Does this mean that Austria is going to get its gold? Lol!!! Let’s review this absurd melodrama on European “gold repatriations” to this point. About a year and a half ago; Germany requested the official return of a mere portion of its gold, roughly a quarter, in what was supposed to be an official, transparent process. It got VIRTUALLY NOTHING back, and what it did get was stored in France. Nothing came from New York (where most of the gold was supposedly stored). None came from London. Meanwhile, we heard that the Netherlands government “secretly repatriated” over 100 tons of its own gold. At first; I was inclined to take this seriously, as possible “pay-back” for its cooperation/complicity in the downing of the Malaysian airliner in Ukraine. But then a really “funny thing” happened. Germany, the same nation which couldn’t get any of its gold back when it wanted to do so openly; suddenly announced that it too had “secretly repatriated” much of the gold it wanted back. Mission accomplished!!! It doesn’t take some master-detective to conclude that this has all been nothing but a sham. There is absolutely no possible reason — of any kind — to do any real gold repatriation “secretly”. There would only be a motive to do so if there was no gold, and you’re involved in a deliberate sham. So now Austria wants its gold. If it gets some of it in an open, transparent manner; then good for its government! Getting stolen property back from the One Bank is no easy task. But if we now hear about more “secret gold repatriation”, then all we’re really seeing is more fraud. Some nation claiming to have gotten back gold that no longer exists, which NO ONE WILL EVER SEE — just like all the “gold” in Fort Knox which hasn’t been seen in 60 years… Austria Confirms Faith In Fiat Fading: Repatriates 110 Tons Of Gold From BOE www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-05-22/austri…es-110-tons-gold-boe Six months ago we warned that Austria was considering it, and now, as Kronen-Zeitung reports, with no rigged Swiss-like referendum required, Austrian Central Bank Governor, and the person many claim is in Mario Draghi’s inner circle of trust (soon to be revised) Edwald Nowotny has committed to repatriating 110 tonnes of gold. This is part of Nowotny’s new “gold strategy” and with his position (on paper) as one of Draghi’s foremost lieutenants, appears to be a big stab in the back for super money printing Mario. While gold withdrawals from the NY Fed have been incessant over the past year…
