Leila Trablesi confesses: "I wanted the gold to give to the Red Cross"

To catch up with this story, Day 1 of the Tunisian Revolution: Leila stole the gold from the vault and flew away with it under cover of the confusion civil unrest provided.
Day 2, the interim government kicks out the Governor of the Tunisian Central Bank and drops in a Washington Consensus man, schooled at Goldman Sachs ("Doing God's Work").
Day 3, the former Governor squeals, and the London Metals exchange confirms that 1.5 tonnes of Tunisian gold are "missing". The composition of the "interim government" rapidly evolves and a new Governor is parachuted into the Tunisian Central Bank. (Wrong God).
Day 4: Behind you! Behind you! 1.5 tonnes of gold miraculously re-appear.
Not in Tunis, though, ho ho. Now the London Central Bank is said to have had the gold all along. They could have spoken up sooner, but kept mum.
I've long suspected that Goldman Sachs should be spelt 'Goldman Sacs'; it would be more fitting.
