Iran repatriates thirteen metric tons of frozen gold from Central Bank -- Puppet Masters -- Sott.net

Iran has secured the release of 13 metric tons of its gold assets blocked in South Africa under US-led sanctions, central bank Governor Valiollah Seif has said.

The repatriation came thanks to the Iranian negotiating team's follow-up of the matter in the ongoing nuclear talks in Vienna, the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) said in a statement.

"An equivalent of 13 tons of gold purchased before and held in South Africa over the past two years due to sanctions and certain obstructions arrived in the country in three consignments and was delivered to the CBI treasury," Seif said.

The transfer took place over the past week and the last consignment, including four metric tons of gold bullion, arrived in Tehran Tuesday night, he added.

"With the efforts of the diplomatic apparatus, the problem of transferring part of Iran's gold assets was resolved on the sidelines of the Vienna negotiations," the CBI statement said.

According to the CBI, the removal of sanctions and Iran's unfettered access to its assets abroad is one of the main objectives of the country's negotiating team in nuclear talks.

Greek Banks Considering 30% Haircut On Deposits Over %u20AC8,000: FT :: Zero Hedge

Last week in "For Greeks, The Nightmare Is Just Beginning: Here Come The Depositor Haircuts," we warned that a Cyrpus-style bail-in of Greek depositors may be imminent given the acute cash crunch that has brought the Greek banking sector to its knees and forced the Greek government to implement capital controls in a futile attempt to stem the flow.

Unfortunately for Greeks, the ECB has frozen the ELA cap, meaning that as of last Sunday, Greek banks were no longer able to meet deposit outflows by tapping emergency liquidity from the Bank of Greece.

Greek debt crisis: Deal is almost done, says finance minister Varoufakis - MarketWatch

A bailout deal between Greece and its creditors is almost finalized, Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis said Friday, hinting that the two sides have been holding private discussions this week.

No matter what the result of Sunday' referendum, an agreement is "in the offing", Varoufakis said, speaking on RTE' "Morning Ireland" radio show on Friday. If Greeks vote "yes", the government will accept the proposal put forward by its lenders last week, he said, RTE News reported.

"If it is a 'no', I can assure you that on this week of impasse, we've had some very interesting proposals coming from official Europe confidentially, and a deal is more or less done," Varoufakis added, the report said.
