Immigration officers in The Gambia are on the verge of deporting a 29 year old Gambian Swedish national Jamal Emile Jobe, even though his lawyers have filed an injunction for stay of deportation at the High Court in Banjul, Freedom Newspaper has been reliably informed. This followed an Interpol arrest warrant for Mr. Jobe. Jobe is said to be wanted in Sweden for murder and attempted murder. He is also accused of money laundering.
The Gambian police arrested him three weeks ago and has been lined up to be deported tonight to Sweden. Jamal Emile Jobe is currently held at the Banjul police station. He is to be deported at 11:00 PM tonight to Sweden.
Jamal is a Gambian philanthropist and a businessman. He has built a mosque in Brufut. He also owns a brick company in The Gambia.
Speaking to the Freedom Newspaper, Jamal’s fiancé Mariama Bojang said Jamal hasn’t committed any crime that should warrant his deportation. She has called on The Gambian police and the Immigration Department to follow the rule of law and stop undercutting the pending judicial process to stay Jamal’s deportation.
Ms. Bojang said Jamal has hired two lawyers Kebba Sanyang and Mene to help stay his deportation to Sweden.
“He shouldn’t be deported without the outcome of that case filed before the high court. As we speak, they are planning to deport him to Sweden tonight. The rule of law should be respected,” she said.
