Chavez repatriated Venezuelan gold

The majority of it was being "safeguarded" by the Bank of England and the balance at the NY Fed.

It took both banks many months to present the 160 tons of gold owned by the Venezuelan gov't. One can only imagine why...

BTW - Germany and Switzerland are also getting nervous about the US Fed "safeguarding" their gold. There has been a push to go to referendum in Switzerland to make it a national decision.
