Daily Observer editor Alagie Jobe is no longer answerable to the charge of “making document without authority” after police prosecutors decided to expunge it from the charge sheet on Tuesday.

On April 2, 2013, Kanifing Court Magistrate Hilary Abeke, presiding, upheld his March 26 ruling on denial of bail.

Jobe’s lawyer Ebrima Jah had requested for the court to discharge the accused prior to the adoption of the amended charge sheet, but Magistrate Abeke ruled that the earlier decision on decline of bail still stands.


Mr Jobe is now facing five charges of “making an act of seditious intent”, “seditious publication”, “possession of seditious publication”, “giving false information to a public officer”, and “forgery”.

Jobe’s co-accused Mr Bittaye, whose lawyer Seega Gaye was absent, still faces a charge of “unlawful inquiries relating to possibility of forgery”.

Both denied the charges brought against them by the police in Banjul, The Gambian capital, on March 12.

  1. First of all I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.

    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts
    prior to writing. I've had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Many thanks!
