Mexican financial journalist and agitator for accountability in government Guillermo Barba reports today that the Mexican government audit office has reprimanded the Bank of Mexico for failing to verify its supposed purchase of $4.5 billion of gold vaulted at the Bank of England. The audit office confirms Barba's complaint last year that the Bank of Mexico had purchased only "paper gold" at the Bank of England and had no idea of the number of bars it had supposedly purchased, nor of the purity of the bars.

Barba writes that the audit office has recommended that the Bank of Mexico "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 the compliance with the terms and conditions of dealing with this asset." Barba adds that the Bank of Mexico does not want to do this but wants to trust the Bank of England not to play games with Mexico's gold.

Of course this situation is almost identical to the situation that developed in recent months with the gold of Germany's Bundesbank supposedly held in foreign vaults. Barba urges his country to repatriate its gold as a matter of basic national sovereignty just as Venezuela has done and as the Bundesbank has begun to do in tiny steps.

Barba's report is headlined "Mexico's Federal Audit Demands Physical Inspection of Sovereign Gold Holdings" and it's posted in England at his Internet site, Global Financial Intelligence, here:

Of course GATA urges its friends in Mexico to make themselves heard in support of Barba and Mexican sovereignty.
