|Daily Observer Editor Alagie Jobe will know fate of bail request on March 26, 2013|
Alagie Jobe, a deputy editor of the pro-government Daily Observer newspaper made his second appearance before the court on March 19, 2013. This time represented by Counsel Ebrima Jah, who was preoccupied with securing his release from custody.
Segga Gaye, a lawyer for Mr Jobe’s co-accused Mbye Bittaye, an employee of a Lebanese-owned mobile telephony company, Africell, who is charged with “unlawful inquiries relating to possibility of forgery”, also submitted a lengthy bail application.
However, the magistrate pushed the next court session to March 26 in order to “advise” himself on the bail application submitted by the lawyers.
Police prosecutors are of the view that the accused persons are likely to flee the country when granted bail.
