By Christopher Story FRSA, Editor and Publisher, International Currency Review, World Reports Limited, London and New York: Press the ARCHIVE Button on the Home Page for Wanta Crisis reports since June 2006.

Goldman Sachs, the giant financial corporation which is illegally holding on to Ambassador Wanta's $4.5 trillion Settlement funds as co-conspirators with the US Treasury Secretary, its former CEO, Hank M. Paulson – appears to have a problem paying its own office cleaners properly.

The Guardian, London, published a large picture today of scuffles and fisticuffs in the foyer of the institution's plush London offices in Fleet Street*.

The fighting in the foyer was part of a protest by about 20 office cleaners who stormed the bank's headquarters, trapping some of the wealthiest financiers in the building.

The staff, from a cleaning firm called ISS, took their protest to the investment firm's premises because, believe it or not, Goldman owns a stake in the firm.

The cleaners, who work elsewhere in the City of London, are campaigning for an increase in the London living wage of 7.05 an hour, compared to the low wage of 5.35 they now receive. Their claim is supported by the Transport and General Workers' Union.

The union, and the workers themselves, will no doubt be interested to learn, from this posting, that Goldman Sachs continues illegally to hold $4.5 trillion of financial resources that it does not own, that should have been paid out months ago to Ambassador Leo Emil Wanta and his Virginia-based corporation, AmeriTrust Groupe, Inc, as repeatedly explained on please see ARCHIVE. The union and the cleaners they represent will also be interested to learn that Goldman earns vast returns on this illegally retained fund, and that the huge bonuses they will be paying out next month may form part of the overall obfuscation of this 'source of funds'.

City of London police were called to the bitter demonstrations in the Goldman Sachs foyer, where financiers are expecting the huge bonuses to be paid to them in December. A photographer from the Press Association (PA) was present at the angry scuffles and fisticuffs, which can hardly have been welcomed by the institution's complacent and smooth public relations people.

Goldman responded pompously that it took 'its responsibilities as a shareholder of any company very seriously. And we also support responsible union representation and the right for people to earn a living wage'.

If Goldman Sachs is so concerned to behave properly towards the employees of a London cleaning company, why is it at the same time continuing to behave so irresponsibly and illegally by holding on to $4.5 trillion of tagged funds earmarked and belonging to Ambassador Leo Wanta?

Or does this institution suffer from a disease called DOUBLE STANDARDS – one consequence of which could be that it may prefer to do the underhand thing until it is forced to comply with the law and common decency and morality?

By being at the very least an accessory to the fact of Goldman Sachs' illegal retention of the $4.5 trillion fund, tagged in the name of Ambassador Leo Wanta and his Virginia-based corporation, Mr Paulson is presiding over a glaring conflict of interest, which probably has no parallel in financial history. His reputation, and that of the US Treasury and the Federal Reserve, like the US dollar, is in tatters – as he allows this irregular situation, abhored by the Rest of the World, to continue.

In fact, as the cleaners proclaimed on their placards: 'GOLDMAN SUCKS'.

International Currency Review Volume 31, Numbers 3 & 4 was published worldwide last week and should have arrived in all parts of the globe by now. We have had confirmations that the special double issue was received – from the Reserve Bank of India, and from many parts of the United States, Canada, the UK and Europe. Also enclosed with the new journal was a 24-page Supplement illustrating, with tax documents, how the Wisconsin State Repartment of Revenue abused their powers and committed gross tax fraud against Ambassador Leo Emil Wanta, in order to sustain the illegal and orchestrated 'takedown' of this great American financial genius and patriot so that the criminal gangs inside the US official structures could steal the $27.5 trillion (now worth perhaps $75 trillion) while he was 'out of the way' for 22 years. No other publication in the world has had the guts to cover this incredible story, which masks the worst financial crisis in world history.
