SUPPRESSED INFORMATION

A commentary by Suppressed Information:

I have often wondered how things would change if everyone in the world cut up their credit cards and stopped making payments to them, if we drew our money out of the banks and closed our accounts, if we began using cash only purchases again. What do you think would take place?

More likely than not we would probably see the largest civil war in history, not just in the United States, but all over the world. The people who control this country by ways of the UNITED STATES FEDERAL RESERVE also control the rest of the worlds reserve banking systems. In fact these people are the same people who finance wars; both sides. Yes that’s right, they profit off wars.

These people also control the four companies which control the other nearly 150 companies in the world which own everything. I know that this…

A UK bank hid £160billion of transfers that helped finance terror groups and Iran’s nuclear weapons programme, it was claimed last night.

In another devastating blow to the City of London’s reputation, Standard Chartered is accused of conspiring with Tehran for almost ten years.

Regulators in New York said it was a ‘rogue institution’ that broke sanctions imposed on Iran and put profits ahead of global security and the law.

It worked with three Iranian banks suspected of being used by Tehran to finance its weapons programmes, according to an explosive report.

US authorities suspect the Iranian banks also funded terrorist and militant groups, including Hezbollah, Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

The New York State Department of Financial Services accused Standard Chartered of doing business with Burma, Libya and Sudan, which are also under sanctions.

It said the London-based bank, which has 87,000 global staff with 2,000 of them in London, had shown ‘obvious contempt’ for US financial regulations.

The case echoes that of HSBC, which faces up to £600million in fines for laundering billions of pounds for Mexican drug lords and rogue states.

The world of banking has already been rocked by the ‘Libor’ rate rigging scandal that landed Barclays with a £290million fine last month.

At least 15 financial institutions, including Royal Bank of Scotland and Lloyds, are being investigated over concerns that rogue traders manipulated crucial interest rates which are used to set mortgages and are linked to trillions of pounds of investments.

In a devastating conclusion to its report, the New York watchdog wrote that Standard Chartered was ‘motivated by greed’ and had acted ‘without any regard for legal, reputational, and national security consequences’.

‘SCB designed and implemented an elaborate scheme by which to use its New York branch as a front for prohibited dealings with Iran – dealings that indisputably helped sustain a global threat to peace and stability,’ the New York regulators alleged.

The watchdog, which reviewed more than 30,000 pages of documents during its nine-month investigation, said Standard Chartered covered its tracks by removing information from wire transfer messages used by US authorities to identify sanctioned countries – a process known as ‘wire stripping’.

The regulator said in ‘its evident zeal to make hundreds of millions of dollars at almost any cost’ the bank falsified business records, failed to keep accurate books, obstructed authorities and committed ‘wilful and egregious violations of law’.

Sixty thousand financial transactions were cited as suspicious.

It even cited a response from a senior London-based Standard Chartered executive to a New York official saying: ‘You f***ing Americans. Who are you to tell us, the rest of the world, that we’re not going to deal with Iranians?’

The Americans have threatened to revoke the licence of Standard Chartered in the US, which makes most of its money in Asia and sponsors Liverpool Football Club.

For nearly a decade until 2010 the lender ‘engaged in deceptive and fraudulent misconduct’ to move money through its New York branch on behalf of Iranian clients.

US sanctions against Tehran date back to 1979 but were heightened following the Iranian invasion of Iraq in 1980.

In 2002, the country was described by former US president George W Bush as part of his ‘axis of evil’. Standard Chartered was one of the few banks to emerge from the financial crisis intact.
