There a couple of youtube clips here of Bill Murphy of GATA (Gold Anti-Trust Action committee) Speaking to CFTC about manipulation in the precious metals market to a sadly dis-interested panel. Bill produces a rabbit out of the hat in the form of a whistle blower who strangely enough is the victim of a hit and run accident the following day.
The following are two clips of Bill in action that you might like to take a quick look at:
then follows this article on the GATA web site:
Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:
London metals trader Andrew Maguire, who warned an investigator for the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission in advance about a gold and silver market manipulation to be undertaken by traders for JPMorgan Chase in February and whose whistle blowing was publicized by GATA at Thursday's CFTC hearing on metals futures trading --
-- was injured along with his wife the next day when their car was struck by a hit-and-run driver in the London area.
According to GATA's contact with Maguire, board member Adrian Douglas, Maguire and his wife were admitted to a hospital overnight and released today and are expected to recover fully.
Maguire told Douglas by telephone today that his car was struck by a car careening out of a side road. When a pedestrian who witnessed the crash tried to block the other driver's escape, the other driver accelerated at the pedestrian, causing him to jump out of the way to avoid being hit. The other driver's car then struck two other cars in escaping. But the other driver was caught by police after a chase in which police helicopters were summoned.
We'll convey more information about the incident as it becomes available.
CHRIS POWELL, Secretary/Treasurer
Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee Inc.
So, is it just a coincidence or are the people at GATA starting to upset a few people?
