'The Simon Wiesenthal Center is looking into whether or not Venezuelan dictator Nicolás Maduro has been trafficking Nazi gold that includes ingots made from fillings taken from Jews murdered in the Holocaust.
The Center said in a statement on Wednesday that it’s studying information exposed by the Wall Street Journal indicating that Maduro has managed to hold onto his regime through selling some 73.3 tons of gold valued at $3 billion, to Middle East and Turkish companies between 2017 and February 2019.
In March, it was reported that a further 7.4 tons of gold ingots, valued at $300 million, were sent in two flights of a Russian aircraft from Caracas to Entebbe, for "refining" and sent on to a Middle Eastern country.
Such actions are in violation of United States sanctions, which were imposed on the country under then-president Barack Obama in 2015.
The Center’s director for International Relations, Dr. Shimon Samuels said in the statement that “in 1997, I was granted access to the Spanish Central Bank archives on gold transports between 1936 and 1945.”
“The data revealed Nazi ingots containing Zahngold, the gold fillings pulled from the mouths of Jewish corpses between the gas chambers and the crematoria,” he said.
According to the center, “these ingots were sent from Germany to then-dictator Francisco Franco’s Spain,” with part of it going to South America, “principally Paraguay, for passage from Argentina to Venezuela.”
These ingots were reportedly being used to “sustain ODESSA, the so-called network of Nazi fugitives bent on building a 4th Reich,” the Wiesenthal Center added.
“Another holding in the Madrid Central Bank, was reportedly transferred to the British Embassy in April 1945 and sent to the UK as a form of ‘life insurance’ for Franco and to prevent a Communist takeover of Spain,” Samuels said.'
