A Nazi money-laundering group started by a British SOE head, an MI6 operations in the U.S. head, an OSS head, and more

Proof.

This is only a fraction of the half a trillion in gold that is even known about, there was actually much more than that.

A couple days ago, I was working on my post about the Paul Helliwell side of the Vatican/British nobility drug-trafficking money laundering network and I had the perception to resurrect my research on the World Commerce Corporation and see where he fit into all that. Oh boy, does he, but along the way I decided to see of opencorporates had anything about it. It did, starting with that apparently everybody has the wrong date for the inception of this mess.

People have placed it variously, sometimes hinging it around certain events (like the disbanding of the British intelligence created U.S. intelligence organization called the OSS – the precursor to the CIA) or simply saying 1945. No one seemed to have an actual ‘hard’ date, including myself, which is part of why I decided to take up my research on it again.

Open corporates had a list of directors, and my attention ‘pinged’ onto one name from it, Sydney Jocelyn Williams. What I knew from the feel there (and then ‘saw’ next) from just that one name, was that he was the tie to British intelligence. More specifically, I perceived that he was tied to Sir Charles Hambro, a head of the SOE (British intelligence).

But, in searching the internet I could find relatively nothing about him. I decided to ask my friend who had helped me obtain the Panamanian records for L.. Ron Hubbard’s Operation Gladio money-laundering organization – the Operation and Transport Corporation – and see if they could get these records for me.

Success! And on Friday the 13th, no less.

Now I just need to see if my translator can help me get all the details out of 186 pages of mostly badly handwritten, in Spanish, documents.

But in the meantime, I still can recognize names when I see them and there’s some doozies.

Let’s start with the basic info that opencorporates had – the research ‘trail’, so to speak.

WORLD COMMERCE CORPORATION, S.A – incorporated in Panama 13 August 1945. Company #137653.
Source: opencorporates and Registro Público de Panamá, http://www.registro-publico.gob.pa/co…, 15 Oct 2016. Overview document: PDF – world-commerce-corporation

A subsidiary of World Commerce Corporation called COMMERCE INTERNATIONAL CHINA, INC. was formed in Delaware, with a branch in California incorporated 14 September 1950.

Ok. Now the actual incorporation documents themselves.
