A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.

WHY ROSEN LAW: We encourage investors to select qualified counsel with a track record of success in leadership roles. Often, firms issuing notices do not have comparable experience, resources or any meaningful peer recognition. Many of these firms do not actually litigate securities class actions, but are merely middlemen that refer clients or partner with law firms that actually litigate the cases. Be wise in selecting counsel. The Rosen Law Firm represents investors throughout the globe, concentrating its practice in securities class actions and shareholder derivative litigation. Rosen Law Firm has achieved the largest ever securities class action settlement against a Chinese Company. Rosen Law Firm was Ranked No. 1 by ISS Securities Class Action Services for number of securities class action settlements in 2017. The firm has been ranked in the top 4 each year since 2013 and has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for investors. In 2019 alone the firm secured over $438 million for investors. In 2020, founding partner Laurence Rosen was named by law360 as a Titan of Plaintiffs’ Bar. Many of the firm’s attorneys have been recognized by Lawdragon and Super Lawyers.

DETAILS OF THE CASE: The lawsuit alleges that, throughout the Class Period, defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements, as well as failed to disclose material adverse facts, about Plug’s business and operations. Specifically, defendants misrepresented and/or failed to disclose that Plug was unable to effectively manage its supply chain and product manufacturing, resulting in reduced revenues and margins, increased inventory levels, and several large deals being delayed until at least 2023, among other issues. As a result, defendants’ statements about Plug Power’s business, operations, prospects, and ability to effectively manage its supply chain and production lacked a reasonable basis. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.

To join the Plug Power class action, go to or call Phillip Kim, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email or for information on the class action.

No Class Has Been Certified. Until a class is certified, you are not represented by counsel unless you retain one. You may select counsel of your choice. You may also remain an absent class member and do nothing at this point. An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff.

Transport Minister inspects maritime and commercial activity at Salif Port and Ras Issa Marina

Transport Minister, Abdul Wahhab Al-Durra, and the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Red Sea Ports Corporation, Captain Muhammad Abu Bakr Ishaq, inspected the navigational and commercial workflow in Salif port and Ras Issa Marina in Al-Hodeida province.

During the visit, a meeting chaired by Al-Durra Minister with the leadership, staff and workers of the Salif Port discussed the status and work of the port, aspects of enhancing its maritime and commercial activity, an assessment of needs, priorities and stages of dealing with difficulties.

Al-Durra reviewed the commercial importance of the Salif port in receiving giant ships and providing strategic stocks of foodstuffs, especially flour, wheat, and various goods that represent an urgent need for the Yemeni people.

He explained that the current equipment of the port is not commensurate with the commercial and navigational role that it plays, especially with regard to the towing and guidance boats for the arriving ships, stressing the importance of making more efforts to raise the level of efficiency of the port’s services.

He urged to enhance continuous readiness and increase unloading rates to ensure that ships do not accumulate in the port’s draft, which leads to pressure on the Corporation’s management and the Ministry, in a way that guarantees speedy work turnover, reduces the stay of ships on the docks, and speeds up the release of goods and their arrival to consumers, especially in the areas that fall within the framework of the Corporation’s ports with high capacity and high population density.

Al-Durra appreciated the role of the workers, engineers, technicians and administrators in the Corporation’s ports and their efforts in maintaining equipment and machinery, especially Ras Issa launch, which was supposed to be maintained in an external dock commensurate with its technical specifications, which is not currently available as a result of the blockade and aggression.

He stressed the keenness of Transport Ministry and the Ports Corporation to meet all the needs of the port of Salif and Ras Issa Marina, expressing optimism in improving navigational and commercial services after the Council of Ministers approved the decision to provide emergency needs for Hodeida and Salif ports.

For his part, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Ports Corporation reviewed the advantages that \ Salif Port and Ras Issa Marina enjoy from the natural depths and the possibility of receiving giant ships.

He pointed out that the leadership of the institution seeks to enhance all needs and requirements to provide locomotive and pilot boats to enhance occupational safety, especially with the diversity of activity in them.

He stressed that technicians, engineers and all port staff are making great efforts in carrying out maintenance work to maintain the readiness of port equipment and machinery due to the imposed blockade and the prevention of the entry of spare parts.

In turn, the director of the Salif port, Dr. Fouad Al-Kibsi, explained that the workers in the port are making every effort to keep pace with the activity and raise unloading rates to reduce the rates of ships staying on the docks.

While the director of the berths and yards department at the port, Fouad Al-Maamari, confirmed that work on the berths continues around the clock, with an increase and speed in the level of unloading goods.

For his part, the director of Ras Essa Marina, Ibrahim Moqbel, confirmed that the marina is witnessing navigational traffic after stopping for years, which requires the implementation of studies to activate its activity in a way that is more commensurate with its capabilities.

After that, Al-Durra, the head of ports, and the director of berths and yards visited the berths of Al-Salif Port to see the navigational and commercial activity. They listened from the Director of Maritime Operations, Captain Muhammad Al-Sayes, to an explanation of the mechanism of entry and exit of ships, the process of organizing them, and the obstacles facing the operational process in the berths, such as the inconsistency of tugboats, pilot boats and port traffic.

Al-Durra and his entourage also inspected the facilities in Ras Issa oil berth of the Ports Corporation, and listened to an explanation from Captain Ishaq and the director of Hodeida Oil Company branch, Adnan Al-Jarmozi, about the existing arrangements for receiving oil tankers, the process of pumping into tanks, loading into locomotives, and distributing them to the provinces.

The minister and his entourage were briefed on the facilities and buildings of Ras Issa Marina, which were directly targeted by the aggression’s warplanes.

Qatari Newspapers Editorials -1-

In the same context, Al-Watan newspaper said that numerous warnings have been issued by various international organizations about the worsening conditions in Gaza Strip as a result of the continuous aggression by the Israeli occupation army. The Arab League has warned of the continued dire humanitarian situation in Gaza, emphasizing that it will lead to boundless suffering. It confirmed that Gaza Strip is experiencing an unprecedented humanitarian catastrophe due to the dangerous escalation by the Israeli occupation, which has now entered its 17th consecutive day. This is happening amidst power, water, and fuel shortages, as well as the prevention of humanitarian aid from reaching civilians.

In its editorial titled “Catastrophic Situation”, Al-Watan said that Gaza is currently experiencing a humanitarian catastrophe that could lead to a genocide. This is something that the Israeli entity has been striving for, as it imposed a complete blockade on the Gaza Strip since October 7. Estimates from the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) indicate that death rates in Gaza, excluding casualties in the context of hostilities, are on the rise due to limited access to essential healthcare services, the newspaper noted.

Al-Watan concluded by emphasizing the necessity for the international community to assume its responsibilities in immediately halting the war on Gaza and the unprecedented humanitarian catastrophe. It also stressed the importance of allowing the flow of life-saving supplies, medical necessities, and medicines, especially since the military attacks and indiscriminate shelling in all neighborhoods of Gaza constitute a blatant violation of international law, international humanitarian law, and the Fourth Geneva Convention for the Protection of Civilians, which affected hospitals, schools, mosques, churches, and residential buildings.

In another context, under the title “Facilitating the Employment of Qatari Youth,” Al-Raya newspaper said in its editorial that the issue of employment ranks among the top priorities of the state. To this end, numerous initiatives have been introduced to facilitate the employment of Qatari youth who are seeking jobs in line with their qualifications and capabilities. This is aimed at harnessing their potential for achieving sustainable development in the country and supporting national efforts in filling particularly leadership positions, by creating opportunities for Qatari youth to serve their nation and channel their creative energies towards the advancement of Qatar.

The newspaper highlighted a joint report issued by the Ministry of Labor and the Civil Service and Government Development Bureau, revealing employment statistics in both public and private sectors for the third quarter of 2023, totaling 1,849 jobs. This represents more than double the number of jobs available in the second quarter. It underscores the diligent efforts made by the state through various entities in both the public and private sectors to pave multiple career paths for citizens, empower them to pursue their professional ambitions, achieve job and societal security and support the economic empowerment of our youth. This is accomplished by providing them with a dignified life through employment and directing their creative energies towards serving the nation and building its future.

The State of Qatar has the right to be proud of the small unemployment numbers among Qatari men and women, through creative initiatives to find jobs for them, not only in the public sector, but also in the private sector, as part of the states plans to nationalize jobs, Al-Raya added.

The platform has witnessed various improvements that have positively impacted the experience of job seekers. One of the most prominent improvements is the inclusion of a feature that allows users to select their preferred sector of employment, whether government, private, or both. Additionally, several technical enhancements have been made to provide a better user experience. The digital interaction allows job seekers to follow the recruitment process or appointment to a job without interference from any party, the paper said.

Qatari Newspapers Editorials

Doha, Qatari newspapers highlighted in their editorials Monday highlighted the efforts exerted by the State of Qatar to ensure delivery of urgent aid to the brothers in Gaza Strip, as the brutal Israeli aggression enters its 17th day.

The Qatari dailies emphasized Qatar’s endeavors through all its diplomatic contacts to ensure access of humanitarian aid convoys into the Strip, and the work for halting escalation and reaching a peaceful solution.

The papers noted that Qatar allocated 124 tons of urgent medical and food aid to the Palestinian brothers, of which only 37 tons entered the Strip. In addition, two Qatari Armed Forces planes arrived at Al-Arish airport carrying 87 tons of medical and food aid.

English newspaper The Peninsula said the participation of HH the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani in the Cairo Peace Summit shows the stance of Qatar in supporting the Palestinian cause and keeping it at the top of its priorities.

In its editorial titled “Plight of Palestinians”, The Peninsula noted that since the early days of the Palestinian issue over 70 years ago, it has been a major concern in the hearts and minds of the people of Qatar. Qatar has raised this issue on all international platforms and dedicated political, financial and moral support to the Palestinian people. The country has supported the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinians, including their right to establish a state on their land with east Jerusalem as its capital.

The paper referred to the Palestinian Foreign Ministry’s warning of the dangers of any political schemes that are being planned in order to liquidate the Palestinian cause and their rights. The ministry denounced the genocide that the Israeli occupation air forces are committing in the Gaza Strip, including the use of internationally prohibited weapons, deepening the humanitarian catastrophe.

Secretary-General of the United Nations Antonio Guterres has emphasized that the grievances of the Palestinian people are legitimate and longstanding and that the context of these tragic events cannot be ignored within the longstanding conflict and 56 years of occupation with no end in sight. He called for respect of international humanitarian laws, including the Geneva Conventions, which includes the protection of civilians, and not attacking hospitals, schools, and UN facilities that currently shelter half a million people, The Peninsula added.

Under the headline “Gaza Relief is a Humanitarian Duty”, Al-Sharq newspaper said that the State of Qatar has allocated 124 tons of urgent medical and food aid to the Palestinian brothers in Gaza Strip, 37 tons of which entered the Gaza Strip, in addition to two Qatari Armed Forces planes which arrived in Al-Arish carrying 87 tons of medical and food aid, within the framework of the country’s support for the brotherly Palestinian people in the difficult humanitarian conditions caused by the continuous Israeli bombing of Gaza Strip.

Al-Sharq called on the international community to assume its responsibilities to ensure an immediate end to the war on Gaza Strip which is experiencing an unprecedented humanitarian tragedy, and to allow the flow of supplies, medical needs and medicines. It also called on international parties to condemn the indiscriminate bombing by the occupation, which represents a flagrant violation of international law, international humanitarian law, and the Geneva Convention (IV) relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War.

The occupation’s heinous war crime affected hospitals, schools, mosques, churches, residential buildings, and humanitarian relief corridors. It is dangerous for the international community to accept targeting health centers and relief corridors, and it is even more dangerous for these crimes to continue without urgent intervention, Al-Sharq stressed.
