Ghanaian Actress, Rosemond Brown, popularly known as Akuapem Poloo has been granted a bail of GHC 80,000, with two sureties.
This was after her council filed for an appeal of the 90-day jail term handed her for publishing an obscene photograph on social media.
Prior to the appeal on the jail sentence, she also filed an application for bail pending the determination of her appeal.
The notice of appeal was filed Monday (April 19, 2021) by Poloo’s lawyer, Mr Andrews Vortia, at the Accra High Court [Criminal Court 2 Division].
Akuapem Poloo was sentenced to 90 days imprisonment by the Accra Circuit Court for publishing her nude picture in which she was standing beside her son on social media.
The actress pleaded guilty to publication of obscene material contrary to the Criminal Offences Act, 1960 (Act 29), engaging in domestic violence, namely a conduct that, in any way, undermined another person’s privacy or integrity, contrary to Section 1(d) (iii) and 3(2) of the Domestic Violence Act, 2007 (Act732), and engaging in domestic violence, namely conduct that, in any way, detracted or was likely to detract from another person’s dignity and worth as a human being, contrary to Act 732.
