Dear European Banking Authority,
Some information of TFEU 1.1 violations for you by the German State, followed by a FOIA request at the end.
In 2013, BaFin, under the control of Elke Konig, began an investigation of Deutsche Bank for gold price manipulation. That investigation was closed by BaFin just prior to 28 January 2015 which claimed that it did not find any evidence. Subsequently in London Silver Fixing Ltd. Antitrust Litigation, 1:14-md-02573 U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York (Manhattan) Deutsche Bank settled $98 million for the same allegations and disclosed materials that incriminated HSBC and UBS as co-conspirators using price suppression techniques they had used to rig Libor and FX markets. Bloomberg in 2015 revealed that UBS had incriminated a number of banks for gold rigging, in return for immunity from the US DoJ.
Subsequently Elke Konig has joined The Single Resolution Board, the responsibilities of which overlap with your own.
I had contacted BaFin’s field agents in 2014 and Ms Konig in 2015 to inform them that I had evidence that Deutsche Bank’s audits were fake. Both stonewalled the evidence. BaFin appeals to have closed its investigation against Deutsche Bank within forty-eight hours of gold and silver rigging lawsuit B40BM021 hitting Anshu Jain’s email box on 25 January 2015 at 23:06. One can figure that Jain would have read his email on the Monday morning 26 Jan 2015 and phoned his contacts at BaFin that morning. It would be interesting to see his mobile records for that period, along with those of Fitschen – and to establish the chain of command at BaFin that closed the gold rigging investigation before the Wednesday on the week.
FYI the signed email to BaFin, giving them evidence of Deutsche Bank’s internal fake audit, is appended in a document posted on my website:
The evidence itself yields a paper trail from the executives to the ground peronnel who would be responsible for the gold rigging and the faking of audits:
Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:
All reports against BaFin for mismanaging or corrupting its gold audit against Deutsche Bank from 2014 to its conclusion in early 2015.
