Argo Blockchain soars Shares in Argo Blockchain started to go parabolic as the Bitcoin price climbed sharply towards the end of 2020. Because Argo Blockchain mines new Bitcoins and also holds cryptocurrencies on its balance sheet, when the value of these cryptos rise, so does the company’s market value.So at today’s 140p share price? A £5,000 investment held for 12 months would be worth a little over £92,000.That equates to a 1,844% rise. In Motley Fool terms, we’d call that an 18-bagger. So where could Argo Blockchain go in future? Could it multibag again?Argo does have competition from some very large private and public American and Chinese Bitcoin mining companies. Canaan and Riot Blockchain come to mind. There’s no direct competition on the UK stock market.Regulated futureIf you believe that cryptocurrencies will be around for the long term, then Argo Blockchain is likely to continue to grow. If, however, you believe that Bitcoin will be regulated out of existence, Argo Blockchain would struggle to function. There are other risks: Bitcoin mining gets exponentially more difficult the longer it goes on. To compete, mining companies are locked in a never-ending arms race to buy ever-more expensive machines. That means high and growing fixed equipment costs in future. If the Bitcoin price falls — as it has done, sharply, in the past — it’s highly likely the Argo Blockchain share price will crash along with it. That said, we are in quite a different situation than the last Bitcoin boom and bust scenario of 2017. Four years ago, Bitcoin had its first major public rocket ride. Its price jumped 19 times in a year from $1,000 to $19,650. Then it dumped hard. Over the next 12 months prices fell 80% to $3,950. Investors were crushed. What’s the difference between then and now?I believe the previous cycle was driven by small retail investors. And that’s why sentiment deflated so quickly. The 2020–21 Bitcoin price rally has been largely driven by institutional buying. With Elon Musk’s Tesla buying $1.5bn in Bitcoin, and the Morgan Stanley investment bank chief strategist Ruchir Sharma admitting that Bitcoin could replace the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency? I say the cryptocurrency is less likely than ever to simply disappear. 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.

And UK investors who want to gain exposure to the rocketing Bitcoin price without having to buy the underlying asset are turning to Argo Blockchain in droves. 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…It remains one of the most viewed UK shares on Hargreaves Lansdown‘s website, and one of the companies with the highest number of shares bought and sold. Bitcoin boomThe company has exploded into the public consciousness over the last 12 months. So how much would a £5,000 investment in Argo Blockchain in mid-February 2020 be worth today?I’ve worked it out. The AIM-listed company doesn’t pay any dividends. So for this calculation we’re only concerned about share price growth. On 12 February 2020, the Argo Blockchain share price was 7.2p. Over the next nine months almost nothing happened. By 12 November, the Argo Blockchain share price was just 12% higher at 8.1p. But that’s sometimes what happens with conviction buys. Often it takes a while for the rest of the market to catch up.

Rasmea OdehChicago — In a major development, attorneys for Palestinian community leader Rasmea Odeh filed a motion July 14 calling for Judge Paul D. Borman to recuse himself from the case. The supporting brief argues that Borman, a lifelong and dedicated supporter of Israel, cannot play the “neutral and detached” role that the law requires.A spurious report from the Associated Press irresponsibly presumes that the defense is bringing this motion because Judge Borman is Jewish. Odeh and her attorneys, including Michael Deutsch, who is Jewish himself, deny this, noting that the motion and supporting brief extensively document Borman’s close ties to the state of Israel, never once mentioning his religion. The AP article has been picked up across the country, and the national Rasmea Defense Committee demands a retraction.Odeh has pled not guilty to unlawful procurement of naturalization, a charge alleging that she failed to mention, in her 2004 application for U.S. citizenship, that she was arrested in Palestine 45 years ago, and tried in an Israeli military court that “convicts” 99.74 percent of Palestinians who come before it. Odeh was physically and sexually tortured into a confession by Israeli prison authorities in 1969.The motion describes how this is important to her defense: “The defendant’s case directly raises issues about the legality of the continuing 47-year belligerent occupation of the West Bank by the State of Israel and the State’s policy of sanctioning the systematic torture of Palestinian detainees by the Israeli military and security police.”In the papers filed with the court, attorneys Deutsch and James Fennerty describe Judge Borman’s long history of support for Israel. They argue: “Clearly, one who has been a life-long supporter and promoter of Israel and has deep ties to the State of Israel spanning over 50 years, who no doubts believes that Israel is a great democracy and protector of human rights, cannot be ‘reasonably’ said to be impartial when these claims of torture and illegality are raised by a Palestinian defendant.“Further, it is reasonable to conclude that as a result of this Court’s many trips to Israel … that this Court has ‘personal knowledge of disputed evidentiary facts concerning this case.’”According to one of the defense committee’s spokespeople, Hatem Abudayyeh, “This motion is about trying to get [Odeh] a fair trial. Borman’s bias is clear.”“Winning this case is not limited to a legal strategy,” Abudayyeh continued. “Thousands of people from across the country are supporting and fighting for Rasmea Odeh. We are urging the government to drop the charges against her. If they don’t, we are mobilizing to fill the courtroom every day of the trial.”The trial is set for Sept. 8 in Detroit.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
RSF requests urgent adoption of moratorium on arrests of journalists Follow the news on Somalia Radio reporter gunned on city street in central Somalia January 8, 2021 Find out more News SomaliaAfrica March 2, 2021 Find out more September 24, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Militiamen raid radio station at behest of Islamic court and businessman Organisation Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders today condemned a raid by militiamen on a local radio FM station in Mogadishu yesterday in which a security guard was roughed up and a journalist was threatened and detained. Ordered by a local Islamic court, the operation was prompted by a dispute between rival businessmen.Although a transitional parliament was finally installed at the end of last month, Somalia continues to be run by armed groups. After years of war and the collapse of the state, some state functions are being carried out by Koranic justice and by local businessmen operating along clan lines.”We continue to be horrified that the Somalian capital is still dominated by clan justice based on a military rabble that takes its orders,” Reporters Without Borders said. “While waiting for the state to be rebuilt, we call on the Islamic courts, armed bands and businessman not to impose a reign of terror and to respect journalists.”The organisation also appealed to members of the transitional parliament to take full account of their responsibilities and not waste the opportunity they have been offered. “Somalis must at last be allowed to live in freedom, and journalists must therefore no longer have to fear this kind of summary and abusive pseudo-justice.”The raid took place shortly before noon yesterday when gunmen packed into two pick-ups stopped outside the studios of Idaacadda Quriaanka Kariimka (Radio Holy Koran) in the northern Mogadishu district of Towfiq. Announcing they had come to arrest the station manager on the orders of the Islamic district court, they roughed up the building’s security guard and accosted the only journalist present, Abdulrahman Abtidon Gabeire. When Gabeire refused to accompany them to the office of the Islamic court, the militiamen slapped him, fired several shots in the air to intimidate him and then bundled him into one of their vehicles. He spent an hour in the district prison before being released.The Islamic district court had acted at the request of a Mogadishu businessman who imports a brand of detergent to supply the Suuq Baiad market. A rival businessman bought advertising space on Radio Holy Koran advising consumers not to buy the detergent because it was “false”. The enraged importer asked the station to withdraw the spot. When it refused, he turned to the Islamic court which immediately ordered the raid.

The 25-year old points out that none of the materials allegedly seized from him are neither banned nor exhorting or supporting terrorism. It was on January 4 that a division bench comprising Justices A Hariprasad and K Haripal set aside the Special NIA Court’s order which granted bail to Thwaha Fasal and co-accused Allan Shuhaib. The Special Court, in its order delivered in September last year, had observed that no prima facie case was made out against the accused so as to attract Section 43D(5) of the Unwalful Activities Prevention Act as regards grant of bail. The Special Court observed that the case materials, at the most, suggested that the accused had Maoist leanings but had not indulged in any overt violence or incitement to violence.The HC observed that the trial court went into a “thread-bare analysis” of the documents on record as if in a trial’ and observed that the documents seized from the accused were “highly inflammable and volatile”.Though the High Court set aside the Special Court’s order, it allowed co-accused Allan Shuhaib to continue on bail, having regard to his young age and special medical conditions related to mental depression. As regards Fasal, the Court noted that the materials seized from him were more serious. The HC also placed special emphasis on the allegation that Fasal had uttered pro-Maoist slogans at the time of his arrest, which the Court termed “blameworthy”.The High Court had also observed that the documents seized from the accused were “highly inflammable and volatile”.In the special leave petition, it is argued that the trial court had only undertaken a preliminary exercise to examine if a prima facie case was made out to bar the grant of bail under Section 43D(5) of the UAPA. In fact, it is the High Court, the petitioner contends, which went into a detailed re-appreciation of the materials on record to substitute the views of the Special Court.Further, it is argued that the High Court was not justified in observing that the principle “bail is the rule, jail is the exception” is not applicable in UAPA cases. The petitioner refers to the recent Supreme Court judgment in Union of India v. K.A. Najeeb, where bail was granted in a UAPA case taking note of prolonged detention, to argue that the High Court’s approach was erroneous.The petition highlights that even the National Investigation Agency(NIA) has no case that the accused is a member of Maoist organization, as Section 20 of UAPA was dropped from the chargesheet. Reference is made to the Supreme Court precedents such as Arup Bhuyan to state that mere passive membership in a banned organization, without any overt violent activities, cannot be regarded as an offence.The petitioner also challenges the High Court’s findings that seizure of banners seeking independence of Jammu and Kashmir reflected secessionist ideology of the accused. It is said that the banners were made in the context of the abrogation of the special status of J&K under Article 370″It is submitted that the contents of the banner and documents were not illegal rather justifiable to excise right of dissent to government policy in democratic way without resorting violence”, the SLP says.”The Special Court order reflected humanist compassion and a sense of reality.The Special Court was able to understood that the accused as two young man who may have flirted with extremist ideas out oftheir disenchantment at the failure of the existing system to remedy social injustice”, the petition drawn by Advocates CC Anopp and PS Syamkuttan and filed through Judy James AoR stated.Also, referring to Balwant Singh case, it is argued that mere raising of slogans of banned organizations, without any overt criminal act, cannot be an offence.As per the information available in the SC website, the petition is likely to be listed on March 23.Fasal, along with law student Allan Shuhaib, were arrested by Kerala Police in November 2019, for alleged links with Maoist groups. Later, the case was taken over by the NIA.In September last year, nearly ten months after custody, the NIA Court granted them bail observing that the National Investigation Agency failed to establish a prima facie case under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA), 1967, against the accused.The NIA Court observed that the notices, pamphlets, banners, etc., seized from the accused related to “burning social and political issues” such as calling for implementation of Gadgil Committee report for the protection of western ghats, condemnation of encounter killings of Maoists, protests against police atrocities, abrogation of J&K special status, etc. The programmes and activities projected by the prosecution were public protests related to current issues, the court noted.”Right to protest is a constitutionally guaranteed right. It is well settled that “Government established by law” has to be distinguished from persons for the time being engaged in carrying on the administration. A protest against policies and decisions of the government, even if it is wrong a wrong cause, cannot be termed as sedition or an intentional act to support cession or secession”, the NIA court had observed.The NIA Court further noted the mere possession of books on Communist ideology, Maoism, class struggle, etc., does not prove anything adverse against the accused.Though the High Court reversed the finding of the Special Court that no prima facie case under UAPA existed, it allowed Allan Shuhaib to continue on bail, having regard to his young age, special medical condition. The High Court placed particular emphasis on the allegation that Thwaha had uttered pro-Maoist slogans, which it court termed “blameworthy”.Next Story
