(Bloomberg) -- Jindal Steel & Power Ltd., India’s third-largest producer of the alloy by market value, and two other groups were the latest to express interest in bidding for Reliance Naval & Engineering Ltd., according to people familiar with the matter.For Jindal Steel, controlled by Naveen Jindal, Reliance Naval can be a captive client for the company’s shipbuilding plates, said Vidya Rattan Sharma, managing director at the steelmaker, who confirmed Jindal’s interest. Dubai-based shipping firm GMS and Kotak Special Situations Fund were among the others that registered to bid as of the Feb. 28 deadline, according to the people, who asked not to be identified as the matter is private.The process to find a buyer for the indebted shipyard, once controlled by former billionaire Anil Ambani, began in May with deadlines being extended four times already. A successful sale of Reliance Naval will help creditors including IDBI Bank Ltd. and State Bank of India recoup part of the company’s 108 billion rupees ($1.5 billion) of debt.GMS, one of the world’s largest buyers of ships for recycling, the Kotak fund and Sudip Bhattacharya, the insolvency resolution professional for Reliance Naval, didn’t immediately respond to emails for comment.“We are looking at it in two ways,” Jindal Steel’s Sharma said in an interview. “One is the strategic location as it is port based and the other is that it can be a good outlet to consume our own plates.”Jindal isn’t partnering with any company for the bid, Sharma said. The company’s shares fell 2.1% in Mumbai on Tuesday.The port unit of A.P. Moller-Maersk A/S, the world’s largest container carrier, and 11 other groups had bid for the asset last year. Maersk’s unit though pulled out, the Hindu Businessline reported in October.Reliance Naval is “naturally interesting” for Maersk’s APM Terminals, the company said in response to a query on Tuesday. “However, it would be too early to say whether the RNEL restructuring will result in a realistic business opportunity for us.”(Updates to add APM Terminal’s comment in final paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
Bandar Algaloud/Courtesy of Saudi Royal Court/Handout via ReutersA criminal case against Mohammed bin Salman and others in the Saudi hierarchy has been filed in a German court for the brutal 2018 murder, dismemberment and disappearance of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi despite the Kingdom’s denial of MBS’s direct involvement and the Biden administration’s flaccid response to the killing.The 500-page complaint filed by the press freedom group Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is the first time a criminal case has been lodged outside of what was largely considered a show trial in Saudi Arabia. That trial saw the conviction of eight people who were later pardoned after the Khashoggi family was said to have forgiven them.Saudi’s Crown Prince Is a Killer. So Why Is Biden Just Shrugging?On Monday, the Saudi ambassador to the United Nations disputed a four-page CIA report released last week which pointed to MBS’s involvement, tweeting, “Let us all move forward to tackle the serious business of world issues!!”Ambassador Abdallah Al-Mouallimi called the American report, which has been widely criticized as weak, as being “based on could’ve, should’ve and would’ve and does not rise to anywhere close to proving the accusation beyond reasonable doubt.”The report, which was held back by the Trump administration and released last week by Biden, does not directly accuse MBS of ordering the hit on Khashoggi but does say he had “absolute control” over all activities carried out by the Kingdom’s intelligence service. Al-Mouallimi argued in a Twitter tirade that “the Prince courageously accepted moral responsibility, presented the accused to the justice system, and pledged to reform the intelligence organizations. Case closed!”Khashoggi was ambushed at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul by a 15-member hit squad including a bone saw-wielding surgeon and seven members of MBS’s elite personal security team in October 2018. The journalist’s body has never been found.The complaint in Germany was filed on Monday with public prosecutors in in the city of Karlsruhe, according to an RSF statement. The dossier outlines the arbitrary detention of 34 journalists and the brutal murder of Khasogghi to underscore what it calls the Kingdom’s “widespread and systematic” persecution of the press.“These journalists are the victims of unlawful killing, torture, sexual violence and coercion and forced disappearance,” Christophe Deloire, RSF secretary-general said at a press conference Tuesday morning. “Those responsible for the persecution of journalists in Saudi Arabia, including the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, must be held accountable for their crimes.”The RSF statement names MBS and four other suspects; Saud Al-Qahtani, a close adviser to the Crown Prince who they allege took direct part in the planning and execution of the murder as well as in the implementation of the policy of persecution of journalists in Saudi Arabia; Ahmad Mohammed Asiri, the former deputy head of intelligence, who is suspected of personally supervising Khashoggi’s murder; Mohammad Al-Otaibi, the Consul General in Istanbul at the time of the murder; and Maher Abdulaziz Mutreb, an intelligence officer who led the team that “tortured, killed and forceably disappeared Jamal Khashoggi.”The complaint was filed in Germany because laws there can extend “universal jurisdiction” to some serious international crimes, even when the victims are not German. The case is bolstered by the recent conviction in a German court of a Syrian secret service officer for aiding and abetting crimes against humanity for the torture of protesters at one of Bashar al-Assad’s prisons, according to the Guardian.“The official opening of a criminal investigation in Germany into the crimes against humanity in Saudi Arabia would be a world first,” RSF’s Germany director Christian Mihr said. “We ask the public prosecutor general to open a situation analysis, with a view to formally launching a prosecutorial investigation and issuing arrest warrants.”RSF ranks Saudi Arabia 170th out of 180 countries in its press freedom index. “Saudi Arabia permits no independent media,” the RSF rationale states. “Despite his talk of reform, Mohammad bin Salman (MBS) has intensified the repression since his appointment as crown prince in June 2017. The number of journalists and citizen-journalists in detention has tripled since the start of 2017.”The German court has not yet accepted the claim and no court date has been set.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

A lot.Stay on top of the latest market trends and economic insights with Axios Markets. Subscribe for freeQuick take: Though markets are showing steadily increasing inflation expectations, analysts seem to see only growth on the horizon.What they're saying: “Investors ask whether the level of rates is becoming a threat to equity valuations. Our answer is an emphatic 'no,'" David Kostin, chief U.S. equity strategist at Goldman Sachs, said in a note to clients. “Our bullish US equity view has already embedded expectations of rising interest rates.”Details: All 11 S&P sectors closed higher Monday and the Dow and the Nasdaq had their best trading days since November.Fewer than 40 stocks in the S&P 500 posted losses, and the number of stocks that finished in the green outnumbered those in the red by 4-to-1.The big picture: "We expect the global cycle to move into an expansionary regime, with growth above its long-term trend and continuing to improve," Invesco senior portfolio manager Alessio de Longis said in a note to clients."Our leading economic indicators continue to improve across regions despite the meaningful increase in COVID-19 infections and more stringent restrictions on mobility in some parts of the world."Invesco reiterated its overweight position in global equities, joining a growing line of investment firms who are dialing up their exposure to stocks and other risk plays like oil.The $1.3 trillion asset manager also noted that it is shifting toward an overweight position in U.S. high yield, or junk bonds, as well as high-risk emerging markets debt while moving out of investment grade corporate credit and government bonds.The bottom line: Economists are ratcheting up their growth expectations and fund managers are ratcheting up their expectations for stock market returns, despite signs of trouble on the horizon.More from Axios: Sign up to get the latest market trends with Axios Markets.
