【メモ】遂に「埋蔵金」発見か?
伊当局、邦人2人を拘束 13兆円の米債券を持ち出しか
2009.6.10 23:22

 イタリアからスイスに1340億ドル(約13兆1000億円)相当の米債券を持ち出そうとした日本人2人が、イタリアの財務警察に拘束され、債券が押収されていたことが10日、明らかになった。同国主要紙が伝えた。在ミラノ総領事館も拘束の事実を確認、日本人との情報が本当かどうかを含めイタリア当局に身元など詳細を確認している。

 債券の金額があまりに巨大であることから、当局は偽造の可能性を含め捜査を進めている。

 イタリア紙ジョルナレなどによると、2人は50代の日本人で3日、スイスと国境を接するイタリア北部ミラノの北約50キロのキアッソで所持していたかばんを調べられ、二重底のかばんの下から米国債などが見つかった。2人の名前や所属などは不明。(共同)

06/08/2009 15:18 ASIA – ITALY
US government securities seized from Japanese nationals, not clear whether real or fake
Bonds worth US$ 134.5 billion are seized. This is the largest financial smuggling case in history. But are they real? Concern over ‘funny money’ or counterfeit securities is spreading in Asia. The international press is silent.

Milan (AsiaNews) – Italy’s financial police (Guardia italiana di Finanza) has seized US bonds worth US 134.5 billion from two Japanese nationals at Chiasso (40 km from Milan) on the border between Italy and Switzerland. They include 249 US Federal Reserve bonds worth US$ 500 million each, plus ten Kennedy bonds and other US government securities worth a billion dollar each.

Italian authorities have not yet determined whether they are real or fake, but if they are real the attempt to take them into Switzerland would be the largest financial smuggling operation in history; if they are fake, the matter would be even more mind-boggling because the quality of the counterfeit work is such that the fake bonds are undistinguishable from the real ones.

What caught the policemen’s attention were the billion dollar securities. Such a large denomination is not available in regular financial and banking markets. Only states handle such amounts of money.

The question now is who could or would counterfeit or smuggle these non-negotiable bonds.

In order to stop money laundering Italian law sets a ceiling of 10,000 euros per person for importing or exporting money without declaring it. The penalty for violating the law is 40 per cent of the money seized.

If the certificates were real, for Italy it would be like hitting the jackpot. The fine alone would amount to US$ 38 billion, five times the estimated cost of rebuilding quake-devastated Abruzzi region. It would help Italy’s eliminate its public deficit.

If the certificates are fakes the two Japanese nationals could get a very lengthy jail sentence for fraud.

As soon as the seizure was made the US Embassy in Rome was informed. Italian and US secret services were called in to assist the Italian financial police.

Some important international financial newspapers had already reported on the existence of ‘funny money’ circulating on parallel, i.e. unofficial, financial markets.

For AsiaNews a few points need considering:

1. When it comes to Italy the world press has tended to focus on Italian Prime Minister Berlusconi’s personal problems rather than on stories like the bonds smuggling affair which has been front page on Italian newspapers.

2. The fear of counterfeit bonds and securities has spread across Asia with the result that real securities are also considered with suspicion.

3. During the Second World War several countries at war printed and put in circulation perfectly counterfeit enemy money. It is also historically established that some central banks, like the Bank of Italy 65 years ago, issued the same securities twice (identical registered number and code). This way they could print more money with legal tender than they officially declared. The main difference though is that 65 years ago the world was involved in a bloody war, which is not the case today.

2 Japanese carrying $134 bil worth of U.S. bonds detained in Italy

Thursday 11th June, 06:18 AM JST

ROME ―

Two Japanese nationals were detained by Italian financial police last week after trying to enter Switzerland with $134 billion worth of undeclared U.S. bonds, mostly Treasury bonds, an Italian daily said Wednesday. The Japanese consulate general in Milan confirmed that the detention had taken place and said it was trying to confirm with Italian authorities whether the two were indeed Japanese nationals and their identities.

According to the report in il Giornale, two unidentified Japanese in their 50s concealed the bonds, including 249 U.S. Treasury bonds each worth $500 million, in a suitcase with a false bottom that was searched by the Italian authorities June 3 when they were in Chiasso, at the border with Switzerland, about 50 kilometers north of Milan. The daily did not say on what charges they have been detained, but the two may have been detained on suspicion of attempting to take a large amount of securities out of Italy without declaring it because the paper said they had not declared the bonds.

某所掲示板より
上の記事は8日付けで、このほかにイタリアメディアにも更新記事が無い。事件発生は6月3日なので、日本人のパスポートや身元調査、債権の真贋の調査はとっくに終わっているものと思われ。単純な偽造事件であれば、日本人の身元くらいは発表されているはずで、全く何も明らかにされていないというのは事件の背後関係が只物ではない事を憶測させます。アメリカのシークレットサービスが調査に参加というのもきな臭い。

仮にこれが本物の債券で、拘束された「日本人」もわけありであるとすれば、現金をスイスの秘密口座に移し変える為の密輸ということになって、債券を出した(イタリアの?)銀行や受け取り予定であったはずのスイスの銀行にとっても大きな災難。さらに、拘束された「日本人」の調査を進めればたいへん面白い展開(ry

Thorough checking of hand baggage is allowed to strike the U.S. securities, hidden at the bottom of a suitcase,
in a closed compartment and separate from that of the personal clothing.
Besides the titles, both carrying a large Japanese bank documents in original.
最後のセンテンスも気になるところで、日本の大手銀行の書類(?)なのか決済関連文書(?)のようなものなのか、この日本の大手銀行が何処なのか(ry
