Bridging the IT gap between rising business demands and ageing tools

The millionaire founder of London-based reseller Micromuse is still stuck in the Channel Islands awaiting trail on charges of possessing drugs. Christopher Dawes is due to appear at the Royal Court of Guernsey on 23 February and is currently out on open remand, according to Channel Islands police. Dawes spent New Year in a Guernsey prison cell after being arrested on the neighbouring Channel Island of Alderney on 26 December. On 14 January he was charged with cocaine possession. A police spokesman confirmed Dawes had appeared in court on 26 January, but the case was not proceeded with as enquiries were continuing into the case. Dawes was again placed on open remand with certain conditions –- he had to surrender his passport and report to the police twice a week. In addition, he was only allowed to return to mainland UK if he gave the police 24 hours advance notice. Dawes, 39, had his helicopter and private jet were impounded and stripped by Customs following the drugs raid. The Australian-born jet-setter last year cashed in his shares in Micromuse, the company he founded in 1989, for £24 million. ®
