Canadian class action against gold and silver market rigging continues against other banks
Canadian class action against gold and silver market rigging continues against other banks by Chris Powell for GATA
Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
While the law firm superintending the Canadian class-action lawsuit against gold and silver market rigging doesn’t seem interested in communicating to the public about the case, GATA is reliably informed that the settlement agreement with Deutsche Bank reported today —
— is not the end of the case.
The lawsuit continues against eight other banks, the London Gold Market Fixing organization, and the London Silver Market Fixing organization, as specified in today’s announcement from the law firm:
GATA is also reliably informed that as with Deutsche Bank’s settlement of the similar anti-trust lawsuit against it in the United States, the bank has agreed to provide evidence against the other defendants in the Canadian class action. Thus the Canadian lawsuit eventually may recover far more than the C$5.5 million Deutsche Bank has agreed to pay to settle the claims against it in Canada.
Of equal interest here is that as far as GATA can tell, the monetary metals mining industry and the World Gold Council have had nothing to say about these settlements, nor about the several admissions of gold and silver market rigging recently extracted from bullion bank traders by U.S. government agencies.
It seems that most of the monetary metals mining industry is interested only in touting share ownership and the World Gold Council is interested only in ensuring that there never is a world gold council.
That may leave GATA as the only advocate for monetary metals investors and adherents of free and transparent markets, limited and accountable government, and fair dealing among nations. Until the people and organizations with the resources to do this job as it could and should be done actually undertake it, GATA will be grateful for your financial support:
Even a $5 contribution will be $5 more than GATA has received from Newmont Mining and Barrick Gold.
