Clamor about gold reserves prompts leasing disclosure by Austrian central bank

Dear Friend of Gold Anti-Frust Action Committee, GATA and Gold:

Germany's clamor and agitation about the integrity of national gold reserves are spreading into Austria, where two national newspapers headquartered in Vienna, Die Presse and Der Standard, this week raised questions about Austria's national gold and even prompted a response from the country's central bank, the Oesterreichische Nationalbank (OeNB).

Die Presse's report, in German, is here:

Der Standard's, also in German, is here:

Sorry for not being clearer and more detailed about all this. While our German friends lately have been performing the most heroic service on behalf of free and transparent markets and limited, accountable government, we are always terribly intimidated by the German language, as was Mark Twain, who wrote that "it ought to be gently and reverently set aside among the dead languages, for only the dead have time to learn it."
