That means over half of the party’s MPs failed to back the policy, which was authored by Vince Cable, the business secretary and one of the most senior Lib Dems in government. Two Liberal Democrat parliamentary aides resigned to vote against the government, as did a Tory aide. And a handful of Tory backbenchers, including David Davis, joined the rebellion.In total 323 MPs voted for the reforms while 302 voted against, meaning the coalition’s Commons majority was slashed by almost three quarters from 80 or so to 21.As news of the vote reached demonstrators, the initially peaceful protests descended into violent riots. As well as the attacks on the Royal couple and the Treasury, some protesters attacked the National Gallery and the Supreme Court, and attempted to set fire to the Christmas tree in Trafalgar Square.David Cameron said the violence was “totally unacceptable” and that the “minority of protesters determined to provoke violence” would “face the full force of the law”. Last night, the Metropolitan Police said 12 police officers had been injured, six seriously. Forty-three protesters were taken to hospital, while 26 were arrested.A spokesperson for the Met said: “This has nothing to do with peaceful protest. Students are involved in wanton vandalism, including smashing windows in Oxford and Regent Streets.”Despite pushing the vote through the Commons, there were signs of tension within the coalition last night – even at the highest levels. An aide to Nick Clegg told City A.M. the Conservatives had hindered the Liberal Democrats’ attempts to sell the policy to voters and MPs.“The policy is actually as close to a graduate tax as it’s possible to get, but some Conservatives thought talk of a ‘tax’ would alienate middle England. It was a spectacular misjudgement.” KCS-content Share whatsapplast_img read more

Investors on tenterhooks to see Glencore’s Xstrata plan

first_img Investors on tenterhooks to see Glencore’s Xstrata plan whatsapp GLENCORE will be forced to disclose whether it has imminent plans to merge with FTSE 100 miner Xstrata in its float prospectus, due to be released in the first week of May.UK listing law requires companies to provide a summary of “all material contracts” with external parties that could substantially affect their financial position. That means Glencore will have to declare if it has advanced plans to pursue a merger with Xstrata, of which it owns 34 per cent, in the next quarter.The commodities trader will also need to update investors on the status of plans to spin off the gold unit of Kazakh miner Kazzinc, of which it currently owns 50.7 per cent. “They’ll have to say something on both Xstrata and the Kazakh gold spin-off,” said a source.Glencore said in its intention to float document that it will use some proceeds from its float to increase its stake in Kazzinc to 93 per cent, with an option to buy 6.4 per cent more if it manages to float Kazzinc’s gold assets.In 2010, Glencore announced plans to float the assets “during the course of 2011” in a deal that aims to raise some $600m (£364m).

BAE share price: can it rise again?

first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! FTSE 100 defence giant BAE Systems (LSE:BA) has endured a disappointing 2020 so far. The BAE share price is down around 12% year-to-date.But when the world is reeling from a pandemic, the economic fallout and geopolitical concerns around the globe, I find it surprising that such a prominent defence company is not thriving. The British multinational defence and aerospace company is the largest defence contractor in Europe. It manufactures armoured vehicles, drones, ships and aircraft and has prominent customers across the globe. Taking a step back to look at the bigger picture, I think BAE Systems will continue to win contracts and grow in the medium-to-longer term. This cements my view that it is a good defensive stock to own in a Stocks and Shares ISA.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…While some may have concerns that the mounting global debt could cause governments to slash their defence budgets, I think ongoing international security issues will keep defence budgets intact for the foreseeable future.Strong financials and healthy order bookBAE has a price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) of 11 and earnings per share are 46p. The board suspended its dividend (with a 4.6% yield) earlier in the Covid-19 outbreak, but plans to reconsider it once the financial outlook is clearer. Image source: Getty Images. BAE share price: can it rise again? Kirsteen has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. I think a P/E of 11 is low for a company with this level of stability, which makes me think investors undervalue it. I imagine many investors will pile back in to this stock once the dividend is reinstated, so it could be sensible to get in early before a surge of buyers pushes the BAE share price back up again.The firm has a targeted free cash flow generation of £3.5bn to £3.8bn for 2020 to 2022.Whether during a rally or a market crash, I would buy BAE shares for my long-term investment portfolio.Wine share price surgesAnother stock worth considering is Naked Wines (LSE:WINE). The naked wines share price has surged since the March stock market crash. And while the BAE share price has stumbled along, the WINE share price is up over 67% year-to-date.Today’s positive results explain this, with news that its revenue soared 81% during the first two months of its financial year ending 2021. This further boosted the Naked Wines share price, which is up another 5% this morning. Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img WINE has a market cap of £282m. Full-year results for 2020 show continuing operations were slightly ahead of expectations. Revenue of £203m was up 14% year-on-year. Total profit for the period is £8.2m and the balance sheet remains strong with net cash of £55m. Like many companies operating in the current economic uncertainty, WINE opted not to provide full financial guidance until the outlook is clearer. But it said it expects fixed costs of £28m to £30m for the financial year 2021.While I think the BAE share price is in bargain territory, Naked Wines’ share price could be overvalued at its current level. It has a P/E of 25, which is quite high, although it makes some sense as its online sales have surged during the lockdown, this may not be sustainable once people resume drinking in bars, pubs and restaurants. I would buy BAE shares at any time, but I would wait for a dip on the back of stock market volatility to buy shares in WINE.

Suspect in Sheikh Belaluddin Ahmed killing arrested in Dhaka

first_imgJournalist Dip Azad, working for Jugantor in Khulna, had a narrow escape on 4 January when a home-made bomb was thrown at him but failed to detonate. From Dacca, he told Reporters Without Borders, “It is no longer possible to work in Khulna. Several journalists are considering giving up journalism under pressure from their families.”Sheikh Belaluddin Ahmed is the first journalist to be murdered in Bangladesh in 2005. Four journalists were killed last year. News Organisation July 7, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Suspect in Sheikh Belaluddin Ahmed killing arrested in Dhaka RSF_en A Maoist group admitted responsibility for the death of journalist Sheikh Belaluddin Ahmed, of the daily Sangram, who died in a Dacca hospital on 11 February from wounds received six days earlier from a bomb placed on his moped in front of Khulna Press Club in the south-west. The group also threatened to target other journalists. BangladeshAsia – Pacific News Bangladeshi reporter fatally shot by ruling party activists Bangladeshi writer and blogger dies in detention RSF calls for the release of Bangladeshi journalist Rozina Islam, unfairly accused of espionage Follow the news on Bangladesh News _______________________________________________________15.02.2005Maoist group admits responsibility for fatal Khulna bombingAn extremist Maoist group, the Purba Bangla Communist Party (PBCP) admitted responsibility on 11 February for a bombing one week earlier outside Khulna Press Club in south-west Bangladesh, which fatally wounded one journalist and injured three more.A letter, signed by the group’s regional leader Sayeed Hasan Suman, was left in the letter box of the Khulna-based daily Purbanchal. It said that it had many more journalists in its sights who could suffer the same fate as journalist Sheikh Belaluddin Ahmed.On the same day, Prime Minister Begum Khaleda Zia publicly voiced her regrets for the death of the daily Sangram’s correspondent, who died from his wounds six days after a bomb was left on his moped in front of the club.Elsewhere, in a joint release, editors of 23 Dacca dailies expressed their concern at repeated attacks on Bangladesh journalists: “We note with regret that after each bombing or murder of a journalist the criminals manage to get clean away (…) It is time for concerted action. Journalists, editors and everyone involved in the media industry should unite to condemn these murders, the physical attacks and threats that journalists suffer,” said the statement. “We plan on using this campaign to pressure the government into ensuring that thorough investigations are conducted and that the murderers of journalists are punished,” it added. Journalists are to hold simultaneous demonstrations throughout Bangladesh at 11am on Saturday, 19 February, called by the Forum to Protect Journalists, a group created on 12 February 2005 at a crisis meeting in the capital._______________________________________________________11.02.2005Journalist dies from wounds in press club bomb attack Reporters Without Borders said it was deeply saddened by the death of journalist Sheikh Belaluddin Ahmed of the daily Sangram, six days after he was critically wounded in a bomb attack against Khulna press club in south-west Bangladesh.Ahmed, aged 48, died on 11 February in the intensive care unit of Dacca military hospital. Three other journalists were injured in the attack in which a bomb was placed in a bag and left on Ahmed’s moped in front of the club. It had detonated as he approached his machine. “We have been drawing attention to the dangers faced by journalists in Bangladesh, particular in the Khulna region, for a long time now,” said the worldwide press freedom organisation, expressing its support for the journalist’s family and colleagues.”This tragic incident is a reminder that the authorities have to restore a climate in which press freedom can exist and put an end to the impunity enjoyed by the killers of journalists,” it added. Editor of Dainik Purbanchal, Alhaj Liaquat Ali, said on 6 February that attacks like the one on the Khulna press club the previous day had been made easier because of the impunity surrounding the murder of journalists Manik Saha and Humayun Kabir Balu in Khulna last year.Speaking at a memorial ceremony for Ahmed at Dacca’s national mosque, Information Minister Shamsul Islam said, “We shall find the criminals and bring them to justice. They must be punished at all costs.”The three injured journalists, Sheikh Abu Hasan, of the daily Prothom Alo and chairman of the press club, Jahidul Islam, photographer for national daily Jugantor and Rafiul Islam Tutul, reporter for the daily Loksomaj published in Jessore in the south-west, have all recovered.Police in Khulna arrested eight suspects, but only one of them has confessed to being involved in the 5 February bombing. Yunus Mridha, alias Goda Yunus, said he was a rickshaw driver asked by three people to put a bag holding the bomb on a moped in front of the press club. But, the police officer heading the investigation was quoted in the 10 February edition of Inqilab as denying this version of events. He said that Goda Yunus himself was responsible for the bombing.A delegation of Khulna journalists is to travel to Dacca on 12 February to inform media bosses about the dangers they face, before holding a press conference at the capital’s press club.

He is suspected of involvement in many other acts of violence, but the main charge brought against him by a Dhaka court yesterday concerned Ahmed’s killing. The court rejected his request for release on bail.Some sources claim that Dhira has made a lot of money from criminal activities that were the subject of some of Ahmed’s reports.

Man found dead in bee-filled RV

first_img WhatsApp ECSO logo wide.jpg Local NewsCrime By admin – April 25, 2018 Dick Scott was dound dead on his property on South Bonanza Ave., south of Odessa Tuesday around 10pm. Pinterest Previous articleFive things you need to know today, April 25Next articleDAILY OIL PRICE: April 25 admin Twitter 1 of 4 WhatsApp Dick Scott was dound dead on his property on South Bonanza Ave., south of Odessa Tuesday around 10pm. Scott’s body was sent to Plains Forensic Center in Lubbock for an autopsy to determine the cause of death. Officials said the man was in his 60s.Crystal Biles, whose father was friends with Scott, said she looked at him like an uncle, said Scott was friendly, but tended to stick to himself.“He would tell us some crazy stories about life,” Biles said. “He was a really down to Earth person.”Biles said his friends had nicknamed him “Crazy Dick,” due to his hatred of the government and the booby traps he would keep set on his property.“He wasn’t married or anything,” Scott Moore, a close friend of Scott’s, said. “He was a loner, but he had lots of friends out here in Pleasant Farms that he would come visit.”Moore said he had been in bad health recently. Scott had recently gotten an oxygen tank, he said.ECSO Spokesman Gary Duesler said he did not know what kind of bees were in the RV, but Tim Cleverdon, owner of Bee Busters, Inc. in Midland, said the two kinds of bees found in this area are European bees and Africanized bees, a type of bee created by scientists back in the ‘70s when they crossbred European and African bees.“They’re like fire ants with wings,” Cleverdon said. “And if they get agitated, they react en masse.”Cleverdon said bees generally start swarming in March or April, depending on weather, then taper off and start swarming in July and August. But he said he has done some bee extinguishing jobs in January this year, the earliest they’ve done that kind of work in a long time, due to the milder temperatures this year.For people who have bee problems, Cleverdon said the best solution is to call a professional to treat the situation for their own safety.There had previously been a bee attack in November 2017, when a man was attacked by a swarm of bees at the Charter Waste Landfill, 12035 W. Murphy St., and was taken to Medical Center Hospital.

Mexican shrimp cocktail is one of the shrimp dishes that will be served to people at the sponsor tables for Shrimpfest. A close friend of the man found dead in an RV Tuesday said the bees had been living in a storage tank underneath the trailer for 15 years.Scott Moore, the friend of Dick Scott, the man found dead, said Scott had never been able to clear the bees out of the RV.Ector County deputies found Scott in a bee-infested RV in Pleasant Farms when they were called about the body around 10:07 p.m. Tuesday in the 13500 block of South Bonanza Avenue, an Ector County Sheriff’s Office news release statedParamedics told deputies they couldn’t stay inside of the trailer due to the swarm of bees, the release detailed, and a bee expert was called to the scene to help in processing and the removal of the body.

Supreme Court Exempts NDTV Promoters Prannoy Roy & Radhika Roy From Making Deposit Before SAT For Hearing Appeals Against SEBI Penalty

The SG informed the bench that the shares of the appellants are frozen by another order of the SEBI and that they are restrained from creating encumbrances on the shares.However, the bench opined that deposit of shares in a court proceeding will not amount to creating encumbrance.”This is a deposit in Court. Not an encumbrance or a pledge. There is a difference”, CJI SA Bobde observed.The SG submitted that if the appellants can give any other security, it will solve the problem. Rohatgi then replied that they don’t have any other security.The SG further submitted that the appeals are listed before the SAT on March 6 for hearing, and the deposit was not a pre-condition for hearing the appeals. The deposit is only a condition for stay and the only consequence of non-deposit will be that the appellants will not be able to enter the share-market, the SG added. Since the appellants are not regular sharedealers, the SG continued, the non-deposit will not cause much hardship to them.Disagreeing with the SG, Rohatgi said that if there is no stay, the appellants’ properties will be attached and sold.The bench ultimately proceeded to direct the SAT to hear the appeals without deposit and put a halt on the recovery proceedings against them.On November 27 last year, the Securities and Exchange Board of India(SEBI) had directed Roys to disgorge the amount of wrongful gain of ₹16.97 crores along with interest at the rate of 6% per annum from April 17, 2008, till the date of actual payment, within 45 days. The market regulator held that the NDTV promoters made wrongful gains by dealing in company shares in April 2008, while being in possession of Unpublished Price Sensitive Information (UPSI) pertaining to the proposed reorganization of the company.The SEBI also banned Roys from buying, selling or otherwise dealing in securities, directly or indirectly, or being associated with the securities market in any manner, whatsoever, for a period of 2 years.Aggrieved with this order, they approached the Securities Appellate Tribunal(SAT). On January 4, 2021, the SAT declined to grant a complete stay and directed them to deposit 50% of the penalty within 4 weeks.It was challenging this order that they filed civil appeal in the Supreme Court.BackgroundThe SEBI noted that the discussions pertaining to reorganization of the Company started on September 07, 2007 and the disclosure was made to the public post trading hours on April 16, 2008. Hence, the UPSI period was from September 07, 2007 to April 16, 2008 and, the trading window was required to be closed upto April 17, 2008 (till 24 hours after the UPSI was made public). It further noted that Prannoy Roy was the Chairman and whole time Director and Radhika Roy was the Managing Director at the said time and were a part of the decision-making chain that had led to crystallization of the UPSI. Nevertheless, the two promoters being in possession of the UPSI sold company shares on April 17, 2008, when the trading window for them was closed and made a profit of Rs 16,97,38,335. “That the Noticees have purchased 4835850 shares of NDTV while in possession of an UPSI-6 during the UPSI period and have sold shares of NDTV within 24 hours of public disclosure of the said price sensitive information (PSI) to the stock exchanges is borne out of undisputed facts. But for their purchases of those 4835850 shares on December 16, 2007, while in possession of UPSI, which triggered the obligation of open offer, there would not have been any necessity for the Noticees to enter into the sale transaction of NDTV shares on April 17, 2008,” the Board said. The Promoters had defended their actions by stating that they attributed full knowledge of all their trades to SEBI and the stock exchanges and argued that none of the leading law firms advising them on their transactions ever alerted them on possible infraction of the Prevention of Insider Trading Regulations, 1992, in respect of any of these transactions. The Roys further stated that the purchases of shares of NDTV were made on December 16, 2007, with an intention to avert a hostile takeover of the Company, while the sale of shares on April 16, 2008, were made as part of a prior agreement with the buyer to raise funds to meet their open offer obligations that were triggered by their purchases made on December 16, 2007. Rejecting this explanation, the Board said, “It is pertinent to bear in mind that creeping acquisition and acquisition pursuant to possession of UPSI are diametrically opposite actions. The instant case does not pertain to and is in no manner concerned with the disclosure under the PIT Regulations, 1992 or the Takeover Regulations, 1997, for an incremental acquisition of shares which might have been similar to creeping acquisition. On the contrary, it deals with a grave allegation of dealing in shares by an insider while in possession of UPSI (PSI-6). Any acquisition by an insider on the basis of an UPSI cannot be camouflaged as a creeping acquisition for seeking of immunity from such a serious violation. The fact that the insider was privy to an UPSI in the instant case and has acquired shares while in possession of such UPSI, in my opinion, is more than adequate to negate the claims put forth by the Noticees to justify their acquisition of shares.” It said that the Promoters had contravened Regulation 3(i) and 4 of the Prohibition of Insider Trading (PIT) Regulations, 1992 r/w Regulation 12 of the SEBI (Prohibition of Insider Trading) Regulations, 2015 and Section 12A(d) and (e) of the SEBI Act, 1992. Further, they are said to be in contravention of NDTV’s Code of Conduct and regulation 12(2) read with 12(1) of the PIT Regulations, 1992. The Board said, “such conduct on the part of the Noticees is not in compliance with Code of Conduct of NDTV and regulation 12(2) read with 12(1) of the PIT Regulations, 1992, as it was impermissible for them to trade in the shares of the Company within 24 hours of disclosure of the price sensitive information by the Company to the stock exchange. The above conduct of the Noticees reinforces the charge of insider trading given the fact that the Noticees purchased the shares of NDTV during the operation of UPSI in contravention of law and also sold shares of NDTV when the trading window was closed for them. Considering that the Noticees held top management positions in the Company and were being actively assisted by legal advisors/professionals, the explanations offered by them to justify such acts are far from satisfactory.” In conclusion, the Board made the following observations with respect to insider trading: “It is trite law that the corporate insiders stand in a fiduciary relationship with the shareholders of the company concerned. The insiders invariably have access to the unpublished price sensitive information by virtue of their position in the corporate hierarchy or on account of their official duties. This access creates an information asymmetry between those having access to such information and the multitude of shareholders/ investors who have no access to such information. The protection of investors in the securities market requires that there should not be any information asymmetry between these two classes of stakeholders. The PIT Regulations, 1992, are aimed at addressing the information asymmetry. It prohibits trading in the shares of the company by the insiders while in possession of UPSI. It also requires the listed companies to draw up a code of conduct so that any trading by the insiders remains above board. Such regulation of trades of the insider is necessary to protect the interest of investors in the securities market and also for regulation and development of the market. If insider trading is not contained, prohibited and dealt with firmly, it would hamper and jeopardize the interest of a normal shareholder.” Inter alia, SEBI barred seven individuals and entities from accessing the market for a period varying from one to two years, for indulging in insider trading. Some of them have also been asked to disgorge the illegal gains.Next Storylast_img read more
