Following a special meeting of the Privy Council at 5.15pm yesterday, the chancellor acted to freeze the assets of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi and five members of his family, including the second eldest son and heir apparent Saif. Although the true value of the family’s UK assets is not known, some estimates put their total British fortune at over £10bn. Osborne said: “I have today taken action to freeze the assets in the UK of Colonel Gaddafi and his family or those acting on their behalf so that they cannot be used against the interests of the Libyan people.”Meanwhile, the government signed an order prohibiting the export of uncirculated Libyan banknotes without a licence, after officials thwarted a brazen plot to shift £900m worth of Libyan cash outside of the UK. The chancellor became aware of the attempt to move the banknotes last week, but was advised by officials that it would take several days to secure an Export Control Order. According to one official, the chancellor then played a protracted game of “cat and mouse” with the Libyan regime, which saw officials adopt a range of stalling tactics to prevent the cash leaving UK shores. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULL

Michael Baxter | Tuesday, 4th February, 2020 | More on: BP Despite concerns regarding the future of the oil industry, I think BP (LSE:BP) shares remain attractive for investors seeking income.The latest results from BP revealed a 21% drop in underlying replacement cost profit, to $10bn in 2019. Despite the fall, the results were better than expected, unlike the latest results from Royal Dutch Shell and Exxon Mobil. 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…BP shares, which currently have a dividend yield over 6%, have traditionally appealed to investors looking for an income. For income investors, the future of the dividend is what matters. They need to ask themselves one question: are dividends likely to either stay at the current level or better still, increase? BP’s latest results revealed good news: dividends are being increased by 2.4%.Oil’s futureThe big concern with all oil companies relates to the future of the oil industry itself.The oil price has remained stubbornly low over the last half decade compared to the previous five-year period. Even when speculation over a possible conflict with Iran began to dominate headlines in January, the resulting increase in the oil price was relatively modest — jumping to a six-month high. Now that the media spotlight has turned to the coronavirus, the oil price has dropped to a 12-month low.In recent years, fracking has had a big impact on the oil cycle. Because of the way it operates, it is relatively easy to to turn fracking activity on or off. The production cost of oil sourced from fracking means that it is typically profitable at around the average price of oil over the last five years or so. As a result, fracking activity picks up quite rapidly when the oil price rises above this average and drops back when the oil price fall below. The resulting rapid changes in supply of shale oil has stopped the oil price from either rising or falling excessively. BP has responded by buying shake oil and gas assets from BHP Billiton.Rosneft and energy transition My enthusiasm for BP shares has another explanation, however.Recently, Jim Cramer, CNBC’s famous investment pundit, suggested that there is no more money in oil. He is perhaps being a little hasty in making that comment, but I broadly agree. All the oil companies need to look beyond petroleum.Of all the oil majors, I think BP is the most likely to manage this. After all, it’s got history. Before the losses from the Gulf of Mexico oil spill made it too expensive, BP tried re-branding itself as Beyond Petroleum.Now the company is having another go and while it’s green credentials are far from perfect, I am impressed with its efforts, especially with its investments in wind farms and solar, and its joint venture with Didi in China to create an electric vehicle charging points infrastructure.BP’s exposure to natural gas, which seems like the least carbon-expensive complement to solar and wind power, is also important.But it’s BP’s plans to divest itself of its stake in Rosneft and the green credentials of its incoming CEO Bernard Looney that clinch it for me.The money from the sale of the Rosneft stake will enable BP to continue to pay down debt, afford its dividend for the foreseeable future, and provide capital for further investments into what Looney calls “energy transition“. That’s why I think BP is a good buy for income investors. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: Getty Images.

One good thing about that postponement in Paris from Ireland’s perspective – Johnny Sexton is now fit. The fly-half had a sore groin three weeks ago but was ready to play. By giving him the No 10 shirt, Declan Kidney has shown he trusts Sexton to run a game in whichever way suits. He needs to replicate the kicking masterclass seen so often by Ronan O’Gara. More than any other side in the championship, France have a back three to hurt you from deep.Too close to call?The lineout should be evenly matched, so, too, the experience in each camp, with both line-ups containing more than 600 caps. However, France have a better scrum, more quality to come off the bench and a more clinical edge, turning a high percentage of their scoring opportunities into tries. They carved out nine line breaks in their first two championship games and converted six of them! They seem able to soak up long spells of pressure without being breached and, at third, are ranked five places higher than Ireland in the world rankings.The facts point to a French victory but Michael Cheika, ex-Leinster coach and now with Stade Francais, says: “It’s going to be real close. It’s going to come down to one individual who’s prepared to make the difference – that’s what happens when good teams clash.”Verdict: With 20 wins from the last 21 attempts over the Irish on home soil, France should nick it.FRANCE v IRELAND, STADE DE FRANCE, SUNDAY 4 MARCH, KICK-OFF 3pm.

Replacements: Sean Cronin, Tom Court, Donnacha Ryan, Peter O’Mahony, Eoin Reddan, Ronan O’Gara, Fergus McFadden.Referee: Dave Pearson (England) Tango in Paris: Imanol Harinordoquy tangles with Sean O’Brien. The two will do battle again on Sunday By Alan Pearey, Rugby World Deputy EditorSO, here we go again. Three weeks and a day after the teams were left kicking their heels in Siberian Paris, France and Ireland meet to decide who will chase Wales hardest to the RBS 6 Nations finishing line.Since that shambolic postponement, France have beaten Scotland unconvincingly and Ireland have done a number on the Italians. Ireland have the same line-up while France, who were troubled by Ross Rennie at the breakdown in Edinburgh, have reconsidered the wisdom of fielding two No 8s by replacing Louis Picamoles with a lineout specialist, Julien Bonnaire. Maxime Medard is out for the year with knee damage, so Clement Poitrenaud is recalled at full-back.Ominous patternIreland’s last nine Six Nations matches have finished: won, lost, won, lost, won, lost, won, lost, won. Not a good omen! More significant, they must try to break one of the great hoodoos of international rugby: since 1972, Ireland have won just once away to France, the magnificent March day 12 years ago when a young Brian O’Driscoll announced himself with a hat-trick.This time O’Driscoll is unavailable, and in his absence the Irish midfield was trampled on last month when Wales sent their huge backs into the wide channels. There’s no George North for Ireland to contend with in Paris, but there is Aurelien Rougerie and Julien Malzieu, both hugely physical. Ireland need to do what they failed to do against Wales – get their big hitters more spread out across the defensive line so that smaller defenders, notably Keith Earls, aren’t isolated. If Rougerie runs into Stephen Ferris or Sean O’Brien he’ll know about it.Critical: Dave Pearson punished Ireland in last year’s fixtureReferee factorFew people outside the respective squads take much notice of the referee, but the name Dave Pearson will send a shiver down Irish spines. Last year Ireland outscored France three tries to one but were undone in Dublin by six penalties, five of them kicked by Morgan Parra. Pearson was the referee that day, too, and he is known to be strict at the breakdown, favouring teams who like quick ball.France have the same back-row unit as then, which means Thierry Dusatoir – the IRB Player of the Year and looking as sharp as ever – will hope to have a decisive impact against Ireland’s trio of bruisers. France’s counter-rucking was impressive at Murrayfield and the breakdown will see some mighty collisions.Kicking accuracy

All six were reportedly released on the evening of 2 August but were rearrested the next day (yesterday).Alhu Sunna Wal Jama’a supports the national government and opposes the radical Islamist rebel militia Al-Shabaab.Three journalists were arrested on 31 July. They were Mohamed Abdi Mohamed, a reporter for Somali National TV, Abdijamal Moalim Ahmed, a reporter for privately-owned Kalsan TV and Radio Bar-Kulan, and Bashiir Mohamoud Salad, a reporter for Horncable TV.Two Radio Codka Bartamaha reporters, Abdullahi Farah Roble and Leylo Nor, were arrested the next day. Finally, Radio Codka Bartamaha manager Nafiso Hersi Oogle was arrested on 2 August.According to the National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ), Alhu Sunna Wal Jama’a had ordered all local journalists to “register” by filling out forms provided by the group in which they were required to enter their personal information.When several journalists questioned the impact that the provision of this information could have on their safety, Alhu Sunna Wal Jama’a responded with the wave of arrests, prompting dozens of other journalist to flee the town to avoid the same fate.“We condemn the arbitrary detention of six journalists by the authorities in Dhusamareb and call for their immediate and unconditional release,” Reporters Without Borders editor in chief Virginie Dangles said.“These arrests and acts of intimidation against journalists and media outlets in the region are unacceptable. Alhu Sunna Wal Jama’a is creating a hostile climate for the media, but freedom of information is essential for establishing a democratic society.”This is not the first time that Alhu Sunna Wal Jama’a has harassed the media. According to NUSOJ, the group closed Radio Galgaduud in the nearby town of Guriel on 18 May, arresting deputy manager Abdulkadir Gure and preventing it from broadcasting for a week after he refused to accept the strict regulations it wants to impose on the media.Somali National TV reporter Osman Mohamed Adan was detained the next day and was deported to Mogadishu.Somalia is one of the world’s most dangerous countries for journalists, who are arrested, threatened and murdered with complete impunity. Of the 43 murders of journalists reported since 2009, only one led to a conviction.While rebel groups such as Al-Shabaab, which is on the Reporters Without Borders list of Predators of Press Freedom, are responsible for many of the physical attacks against journalists, the government is also guilty of crimes against media personnel. Abuse of authority is common and officials often break Somalia’s laws by closing media arbitrarily and carrying out repeated illegal arrests.Somalia is ranked 172nd out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Reporters Without Borders strongly condemned the four-year prison sentence imposed today by a court in Alexandria on Abdel Kareem Nabil Suleiman for “inciting hatred of Islam” and insulting President Hosni Mubarak in his blog, for which he used the pseudonym of “Kareem Amer.”“This sentence is a disgrace,” the press freedom organisation said. “Almost three years ago to the day, President Mubarak promised to abolish prison sentences for press offences. Suleiman’s conviction and sentence is a message of intimidation to the rest of the Egyptian blogosphere, which had emerged in recent years as an effective bulwark against the regime’s authoritarian excesses.”Reporters Without Borders continued: “As a result of this conviction, which clearly confirms Egypt’s inclusion in our list of Internet enemies, we call on the United Nations to reject Egypt’s request to host the Internet Governance Forum in 2009. After letting Tunisia, another violator of online freedom, host the World Summit on the Information Society, such a choice would completely discredit the UN process for debating the future of the Internet.”The organisation added: “This heavy sentence is also a slap in the face for the international organisations and governments that support President Mubarak’s policies. It is time the international community took a stand on Egypt’s repeated violations of press freedom and the rights of Internet users.”Suleiman, who was arrested on 6 November 2006, got three years for inciting hatred of Islam and one year for insulting the president. The judge dismissed the charge of “spreading rumours liable to disturb the peace” which had been included in the prosecution’s indictment. Suleiman’s blogs regularly criticised the government’s religious and authoritarian excesses. He also criticised Egypt’s highest religious institutions including the Sunni university of Al-Azhar, where he studied law.Egypt is on the list of the 13 Internet enemies which Reporters Without Borders compiled in 2006. The government wants to host one of the stages of the Internet Governance Forum, a series of UN-sponsored negotiations about how to regulate the Internet (see: http://www.intgovforum.org/).On 23 February 2004, the newly-elected president of the Union of Egyptian Journalists, Galal Aref, made an important announcement: President Mubarak had just telephoned him and had formally undertaken to abolish prison sentences for journalists in connection with their work. In effect, he was promising a major overhaul of the laws concerning press offences. Three years later, nothing has changed. Journalists still risk being imprisoned despite the semblance of a reform last year. Reporters Without Borders believes that people writing online, like professional journalists, should enjoy the basic right to freedom of expression and it condemns any use of prison sentences to punish offences linked to the publication of views and information.

Limerick scribes formed part of a dynamic network of Munster scribes operating in the eighteenth and nineteenth century and their manuscripts – containing poems, songs, stories and historical and spiritual material – are preserved in libraries and institutions across Ireland and overseas. Some manuscripts are still here in Limerick,including the De Bhál collection in the Diocesan Archives in Henry Street.

The court has also allowed the parties to file their written submissions by the next date. The defamation case relates to a complaint filed by Sisodia against BJP leaders — Members of Parliament Manoj Tiwari, Hans Raj Hans and Pravesh Verma, MLAs Manjinder Singh Sirsa, Vijender Gupta, and Spokesperson Harish Khurana — for allegedly making defamatory statements of his involvement in corruption of nearly Rs 2,000 crore in the building of classrooms in Delhi’s government schools. Challenging the summons issued by a Rouse Avenue court to Tiwari and other co-accused persons in November last year, Sr. Adv. Pinky Anand’s main line of attack on the summons order was that the same was based on a CD which had been relied upon as evidence, even in the absence of a record. She argued that in the absence of a record, the CD was not legally admissible as evidence and that the certificate produced under Section 65B of the Evidence Act, was also “wholly unreliable”. Section 65B. Admissibility of electronic records— (1) Notwithstanding anything contained in this Act, any information contained in an electronic record which is printed on a paper, stored, recorded or copied in optical or magnetic media produced by a computer (hereinafter referred to as the computer output) shall be deemed to be also a document, if the conditions mentioned in this section are satisfied in relation to the information and computer in question and shall be admissible in any proceedings, without further proof or production of the original, as evidence of any contents of the original or of any fact stated therein of which direct evidence would be admissible. Sub-section 4 of Section 65B of the Evidence Act deals with the requirement of a Certificate accompanying an electronic record, for it to be admissible as evidence. It states that: (4) In any proceedings where it is desired to give a statement in evidence by virtue of this section, a certificate doing any of the following things, that is to say,— (a) identifying the electronic record containing the statement and describing the manner in which it was produced; (b) giving such particulars of any device involved in the production of that electronic record as may be appropriate for the purpose of showing that the electronic record was produced by a computer; (c) dealing with any of the matters to which the conditions mentioned in sub-section (2) relate, and purporting to be signed by a person occupying a responsible official position in relation to the operation of the relevant device or the management of the relevant activities (whichever is appropriate) shall be evidence of any matter stated in the certificate; and for the purposes of this sub-section it shall be sufficient for a matter to be stated to the best of the knowledge and belief of the person stating it. Anand also submitted that Sisodia’s case had relied on newspaper reports, and that the same could not classify as “good evidence”. She said, “You can’t pick up a newspaper and say this is good evidence. No newspaper is good evidence, it’s not a matter of public record.” The Court then asked her if any testimony of any viewer had been taken on record, upon which the testimony of 1 viewer was pointed out. Sr. Adv. Vikas Pahwa appearing for Sisodia, on the other hand, pressed that the Section 65B certificate produced in the matter did not suffer from any anomaly and was very well valid. He relied on a judgment by the High Court and argued that it was settled law that this Certificate could be submitted at any stage. He also argued that the accused persons had not denied at any stage that the press conference had in fact taken place, and if there indeed was any corruption, the accused persons should have filed a criminal complaint. “If there was any corruption, have they filed any criminal complaint? An RTI doesn’t count,” he said, referring to one RTI application filed by the accused persons on the corruption charge. The AAP leader filed the complaint under Section 200 of CrPC r/w for commission of offences under Sections 499, 500 r/w Sections 34 and 35 of the IPC – for making false and defamatory statements in print, electronic and social media. The accused are out on bail in the matter. Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
