The proprietor of one of the most established mobile phone enterprises in the country, Amadou Jobe, was yesterday 21st January 2010, granted court bail in the sum of D2 million by Justice Joseph Wowo of the Banjul High Court.

Mr. Jobe was until yesterday's injunction detained at the Remand Wing of the State Central Prison Mile 2, charged with the offence of issuing different cheques amounting to two million Dalasis.

The bail condition further stipulated that Mr. Jobe should provide two Gambian sureties with properties within the Greater Banjul Area, and that the title deeds must be deposited at the High Court.

This order was as a result of a motion filed at the High Court by his defence counsel, Pap Cheyassin Secka, requesting the High Court to grant the applicant court bail.

He argued that the accused is well entrenched in society, and will not jump bail.
