May 30, 2008, 5:32 AM | Article By: By Pap Saine

Mr. Malick Jones, Principal Producer responsible for Current Affairs, Documentaries and Sports yesterday resumed work with GRTS, reliable sources informed this paper. Mr Jones was interdicted from September 2007 to May 28th 2008. He was previously charged along with Mam Sait Ceesay for sending coded words to a foreign journalist. That charge was subsequently dropped.

It would be recalled that Mam Sait, former Press Secretary State House, was on May 14th 2008 acquitted and discharged by a Magistrates' Court.

Mr Malick Jones confirmed the story and said he was "happy to resume work" after being notified by the relevant authority that he could do so.

Thanking all those who stood by him during his trying times, Mr Jones said: "I will be happy to be on the air to serve the purpose of being a versatile broadcaster. I will always serve my country."
