In the wake of this week’s ruling by the German Federal Accountability Office that Germany must repatriate and audit 150 tons of its gold reserves from the NY Fed over the next 3 years, a Netherlands citizens committee has filed a petition demanding the Central Bank release information on the quantity and storage location of the Netherlands’ physical gold, and on the extent and nature of the gold claims.Should the citizens committee be successful, we are confident they will discover the vast majority of the country’s gold reserves- 10th largest in the world at 612,000 kilograms, are held in the basement of the NY Fed.
As we stated several days ago, the jig is now up. The German accountability office will trigger an avalanche of gold audit, delivery, and repatriation requests around the Western world. We wish the Fed luck staying ahead of the cascading avalanche of requests to convert unallocated (rehypothecated) gold into solid physical metal. They’re going to need it.

I can imagine the US refusing to hand back the gold. This in my opinion would be an act of war
