Switzerland, blood gold capital of the world

 

5th February 2016

 

(This is part one of an intriguing investigation into blood gold, money laundering and white collar crime that is ongoing and we hope to bring much more on the subject in the near future)

Over the millennia the mining of gold has driven some of the world’s most brutal practices, as armed militias enslave entire populations, forcing them to mine with their bare hands or use rudimental tools at the blade of a machete or point of a gun. There is nothing new about ‘blood gold’, it’s just that you had no idea that you were likely supporting it when you bought that special piece of jewelry for your partner or relative. From cheap high street retail chains to the fashion houses of Paris and New York, blood gold adorns us all.

It might surprise you to learn that a minimum of two thirds and possibly as much as 90 percent of the world’s gold goes, at some stage through Switzerland. It stands to reason then that four of the six largest gold refineries in the world have their headquarters there.

And what better country to carry out such a task than one of the most trusted nations on earth. According to Transparency International’s latest ‘Corruption Perception Index‘, Switzerland ranks number seven in the world as least corrupt.

This week, truepublica published a report on what an absurdity this report really is when it came to Britain ranking as number 10 in global terms. Likewise, Switzerland is mired in international terror financing and money laundering from the Mafia to militia groups, from drugs, arms and trafficking to the destabilisation of entire nations.

Here we highlight just a few of the high crimes Switzerland is as an accomplice to the deplorable global corruption that makes up one third of Swiss GDP and it makes for sobering reading. And these are far from few.

For instance, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo five million people have died in conflicts fuelled largely by the gold trade. According to the International Peace Information Service (IPIS), nearly 500 out of the 800 mines it surveyed in 2013 in the DRC are run by armed groups or the corrupt Congolese army.

Six months ago, activists accused authorities in Switzerland of encouraging impunity, after prosecutors shut a case against a Swiss company, one of the largest gold refineries in the world, suspected of laundering over 3 tonnes of gold pillaged by armed groups in the DRC.

Columbia, in South America is no different where criminal mining operations are connected to paramilitary groups, drug traffickers and all manner of awful crimes. Illegal mining brings in approximately $2.5 billion a year and has now eclipsed cocaine trafficking as the main driver of violence and a source of dirty money, according to Columbia’s President Juan Manuel Santos.

America Aljazeera reported that over 47 tonnes of gold worth $1.4 billion was exported out of Columbia and ended up in refineries at Republic Metals Corp, in Miami and Metalor Technologies USA, Massachusetts, a subsidiary of the Metalor Technologies SA, headquartered in Neuchatel, Switzerland. The scheme was laundering money from the proceeds of cocaine sales that contributes to over 5,000 deaths annually in the US alone.

In the heart of continental Africa is the Central African Republic (CAR). It has a population of 4.6 million whose inhabitants earn on average $333 a year.  Revenue generated by illegal exports of gold, diamonds and other resources is fueling a conflict that has engulfed it. Thousands of people have died. The United Nations says more than half of the population are now in need of urgent humanitarian assistance and about 1 million have fled their homes to neighboring countries or camps as a result of the violence.

Chinese, Sudanese and European arms and ammunition have poured into the CAR from neighboring countries, the Brussels-based Conflict Armament Research consultancy said in a report last January. Its investigators found “vast quantities” of Chinese-made grenades throughout Central African Republic. Each cost less than a dollar. About 95 percent of the gold that is mined leaves the country secretly, according to IPIS with Switzerland its prime money laundering partner.

In a statement about one of Switzerland’s largest gold refineries, Track Impunity Always or TRIAL and two other
non-governmental organisations warned the Swiss authorities that dropping the case of just one of the many illegal gold trades  “gives free rein to companies who violate their duty of diligence and prefer to remain ignorant of the criminal origin of raw materials.” The decision, in this case, they said, “undermines international efforts to eliminate the illegal resource trade that fuels conflicts around the world.” The organisations said the ruling also raised serious questions about Switzerland’s role in the precious metals trade. They questioned “how several tonnes of dirty gold coming from one of the bloodiest and publicised conflicts of our time can reach Switzerland and be refined there without any consequences.

So what makes gold so precious to the biggest criminals of the world? Take Cocaine, it has to travel via clandestine routes from supplier direct to the consumer, whereas illegal gold travels with legal documents via airfreight thanks to Switzerland’s global fraud trade.

Gold, like diamonds is easy to smuggle because it has a higher value-to-weight ratio, and documenting and certifying the origin of gold is extremely difficult. While it may be possible to accurately trace the origin of tin, tungsten and other minerals though lab testing, gold is much harder. It’s easily melted, and once it is, tracing it by its physical properties becomes impossible.

So deeply ingrained is the gold industry in Switzerland that The Bank for International Settlements (BIS), the central banks’ banker, is based in Basel. Almost all of central banks’ gold trades are effected by the BIS in the utmost ‘discretion’ or secrecy to you and me. The headquarters of the World Gold Council was in Zurich, before moving recently to the money laundering capital of the world, London. Geneva has also been the global centre for jewelry and watchmaking for many years as has its most important gold auctions. The best precious metals storage and safekeeping companies are also based in Switzerland.

Mining companies, gold recyclers and criminals with global reach export to Switzerland, where the gold is purified to the highest standards. It is then exported to traders, jewellers, investors or central banks the world over. Much of it tainted in criminality.

It is of no wonder then that the highly secretive authorities in Switzerland will do what it takes to protect a market worth $94 billion, which represents almost 31 percent of the entire export activity of the country each year.

For a glimpse into this harrowing underworld, Peter Koenig, economist, geopolitical analyst and former world bank staff stated in an email exchange with truepublica on the subject that an “Argentinian journalist who visited one of the most miserable gold mines in the world, in Rinconada, a city in the Peruvian Andes, reported that a 70,000 people town on 5,400m altitude, made of corrugated iron shacks, with no heating no running water, no sanitation facilities, no electricity coverage by grid, no heating, with prostitution, including child prostitution, drug trafficking, crime and daily violence – is run by a killer mafia. The mine is registered as a legal mine and exploited by the Swiss Metalor, assisted by SECO, a branch of Swiss Development Cooperation (at tax payer’s money). It is horrendous. All the Swiss have to say to this – the private company Metalor has a contract with the Peruvian Government; it’s up to the Peruvian Government to see to ethics standards. The Swiss know damned well about the indescribable level of corruption that is reigning in Peru.” Koenig confirmed that one quarter of the world’s blood gold is “whitewashed” in Switzerland with cyanide and mercury contamination of the environment and especially water resources another casualty we all eventually have to face.

Keonig’s email gives some insight into the horrendous conditions local residents, children included, are forced to work in. And somehow you thought your trainers being made by child slave labour was bad enough!

Lastly, according to Swiss customs statistics made available through Chrisoph Wiedmer, head of the swiss NGO, “Swiss Society for Threatened Peoples, Switzerland”, Switzerland is on average importing between 2,000 to 5,000 tons of gold per year, and in recent years more like 5,000 tons per year. One should consider this against the total estimated worldwide annual gold production of about 2,400 – 2,500 tons. Most of it comes from the UK, Wiedmar says.

In other words, Weimar is saying that the UK recycles already refined gold through Switzerland, apparently reshaping the gold bars, most of them likely for export to India which requires different bar sizes. As the old saying goes, if it looks like money laundering, quacks like money laundering, guess what …..

Interestingly, both the UK and Switzerland make it to the best ten in the Transparency International Index of ‘perceived’ corruption. Both countries are havens for white collar criminals that function totally legally under the protection of their respective government.

By Lord Aikins Adusei (Modern Ghana)

For more than half a century the Alpine nation of Switzerland has built a reputation as the world´s centre for tax evasion, fraud accounting, money laundering, racketeering, and above all a staunch ally of corrupt third world leaders and a great beneficiary of third world corruption.

Various categories of persons including Popes, presidents, prime ministers, corrupt dictators, wealthy business men, and drug dealers have all used and benefited from the banking secrecy laws of Switzerland. As a result her economy has been described as an underground economy, a deposit box for dirty money and a “dirt-driven economy”.

Over the last couple of years countries such as United States, Germany and France have argued that they have become victims of Swiss illegal financial activities and as result have stepped up their campaign to get Swiss authorities to cooperate in fighting tax evasion and money laundering. The campaign has even brought a row between the German Finance Minister and members of Swiss parliament. These nations claim they are loosing billions of dollars annually through tax evasion and other illegal financial activities. In 2009 an action by the US Justice Department against the Swiss Banking giant UBS earned the United States close to $1 billion. In 2001, the United States learned that the Swiss had protected the bank that handled finances for Osama Bin Laden. One of them, the Bahrain International Bank, had funds transiting through non-published accounts of Clearstream, which has been qualified as a “bank of banks” and was involved in one of Luxembourg’s major financial scandals.

Western governments have argued that dirty money in many forms welcomed by the Switzerland allows the proceeds of corruption, drug trafficking, racketeering and terrorism to tag alongside and deny the world´s poor the chance to escape poverty. Swiss banks are reputed to be holding an estimated 35% of the world’s private and institutional funds (or 3 trillion Swiss francs)”.

However, of all the victims of Swiss banking secrecy laws and her shady banking practices, developing countries and Africa in particular seem to have suffered the most. The global infrastructure of international financial secrecy with headquarters in Switzerland has helped bleed trillions of dollars in illicitly generated money out of Africa and the rest of the developing world. The activities of Swiss banking institutions and real estate companies have plunged third world nations into debts, poverty, misery, malnutrition, diseases, economic meltdown, infrastructure decay and political instabilities through the help they give to corrupt politicians, civil servants, the business elite and corrupt multinational corporations who collude and connive with the corrupt entities to loot and hide the proceeds of their ill-gotton gains

    The whole world is wrecked, by greed. The only issue that ordinary people have contributed to is over population. This is an area the greedy grabbers are tackling. I’m not even sure how big a problem it is, as apparently, (calculators ready), every living person on the earth just now could be given half an acre in Australia, leaving Queensland, and the whole rest of the world un-populated. I know that much of it is desert, but it shows a different perspective on the problem. I feel that greed and corruption is something that is currently rewarded, but in reality should be harshly penalized. These creeps are doing much more harm than the rest of us combined.

    • Hi Ian overpopulation is a Scottish Rite Freemason Jesuit Zionist Ashkenazi Khazar
      UN Lucis Trust https://www.lucistrust.org/
      Luciferian Satanic Deception in this world they’ve tried to create around us, a TRUMAN SHOW
      The suppressing of FREE ENERGY technologies based on Nikola Tesla and others discoveries into the ether. And the associated wonderful technologies, that etheric machines can do, with soil regeneration, health, and more. Wheras instead these etheric technologies are being used for bad purposes like harp, and other psychotronic weapons to covertly exert control over us and suppress us.

      SHOWS US CLEARLY IAN THERE IS NO OVERPOPULATION CRISIS. THERE IS ONLY ARTIFICIAL POVERTY, AND AN ILLSUION OF OVERPOPULATION BY THE TAVISTOCK/FRANKFURT MIND CONTROLLERS

      The Book of Revelation, Chapter 2, Verse 9, states the following which would appear to be about these Ashkenazi Jews:

      “I know thy works, and tribulation and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.”

      PS I forgot to include the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to the above

    True Ian – greed for money, power and pleasure.
    This guy Chatzefratz has made many interesting videos on the history of Swiss corruption – their links to Templars, Nazis, occult business. He is an academic who has been under house arrest in Schweitz for his outspoken views against the government, police etc so I guess he’s hit a nerve
    Many of his videos are posted here

    • Just to get something straight, without having to read up which I haven’t time or energy to at the moment. The Knights Templars are/were bad people aren’t they? This has been the impression ive formed. There are NO good knights Templars is that correct? From what ive read, the KT seemed to have never been far away from evil and trouble. But I trust your confirmation for me on these matters! Changing subject look at this, its interesting
      ———————————————————–
      Its a chart discussing the Na/K sodium/potassium ratio inside and out of cells. And the different ratios of bodies on earth ranging from angels, elves, humans, animals down to fungi. This na/K ratio can be changed by balancing zinc, calcium, mag, selenium and other paramters of the body. Taking in sodium by itself for example, wont alter the sodium Na ratio. . This is interesting below

      ” This chart shows the unity of all life forms on earth and elsewhere, based on their ideal sodium/potassium ratios. This is one of the most interesting charts anywhere.

      The reason for its importance is that the sodium/potassium ratio indicates, among other things, the electrical charge of the cells. This is dependent upon various factors, but mainly the amount of etheric energy that a body holds.

      As you can see on the chart, bacteria and tiny life forms hold little of this energy, so their sodium/potassium ratio is low. Larger animals and humans hold more of this life energy, so their sodium/potassium ratio is higher. Beyond this are other life forms of which we know less. However, they exist and they can hold a lot more life energy.

      One of the most important reasons for following a nutritional balancing program for a number of years is so that you will develop mentally, or evolve. This does not mean genetic change. It means that the body and brain develop more than they usually would during a single lifetime. This will tend to raise the sodium/potassium ratio, indicating that the body can hold or store more life Qi etheric energy.

      For more information about some of these bodies or life forms, please read Bodies On Earth on this website. ”

        Very interesting. I dug out a hair mineral analysis from 2012 and my Na was 17 and K was 6….. And I’ve only improved since then – like well cellared wine… 😉

        Here is an amazing health/medical resource I have only just discovered
        http://raypeat.com/

    • That’s great. Hair Analysis, certain labs methods and readings etc, is a good topic for us to discuss another time.

      BTW Abi im waiting for a clue from somewhere, whether laviolette replying, or something else. I really think my December obsession causing exasperation to some on here, about dubay/flat earth. Really yielded a breakthrough highly resistant to trolls thanks to Henrys maths. The earth is supermassive. And does it really matter whether its a perfect sphere or oblate spheroid? Its spherical. I feel we have achieved a lot in the face of this psyop. The Freemasons wanted to tie up our minds and take us down cul de sacs debating etc, and we have PUSHED BACK
      In a way I do understand Shambala, Agartha inner earth admiral Byrd might too be part of the same psyop. It might. So im proceeding with caution. Yesterday Abi on BBCNews24 the dead astronaut clips from the orbiting shuttle, the curvature CGI obviousness, was striking! In one shot, there was curve….then it went to a long flat surface! No kidding.

      When I get compelled to create another post, most likely next on Supermassive earth. Rather than in the first instance email to Tap, ill post it on my blog first http://interdimensionalwarrior.blogspot.co.uk/
      So ill have create clear sections/subdivisions for
      – Alternative medicine
      – Supernatural physics/metaphysics discussions
      – Some religious debate such as who Jesus, Buddha were
      – And as well when the topic need develops, hydroponic home gardening.
      Though ill ensure alt med will be the most prominent section, and blog mission. As we fight in this INTERDIMENSIONAL SPIRITUAL WAR THAT TAKES IN MULTIPLE PLANES OF EXISTENCE SIMULTANEOUSLY

      Ray Peat. A very interesting man and articles. However we must discuss Ray Peat, im sure the man means well and has tailored his own version using his biochemistry/physiology background, to manage his fragile thyroid state. Plus he exposes so much corruption. I like him.

      But Peats thinking does not add up in certain ways which ive explored and cross checked and we must discuss sometime what I mean by all this.

      Any KT thoughts you have appreciated.

        Re Ray Peat, I have read a couple of his articles that were helpful and am intrigued by the titles of many of the others. I plan to read them all then I may be better able to comment. Just think there could be a lot of useful info re diet, stress, environment etc in there also.
        Sorry, not a KT wiz but Dogman would probably be able to help.
        I am interested in the possibility of a super massive earth but the perception factor and different dimensions make it difficult to concretize/solidify…
