– Did Citi Just Confiscate $1 Billion In Venezuela Gold:
Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro said on Monday that Citibank planned to shut his government’s foreign currency accounts within a month, denouncing the move by one of its main foreign financial intermediaries as part of a “blockade.” What Maduro did not mention is that among the central bank accounts closed by Citi will be at least one, rather prominent, gold swap launched just over a year earlier, which saw some 1.4 million ounces in gold swapped over to Citi in exchange for cash… gold which now appears to be confiscated.
