Just In: Akuapem Poloo granted bail

Ghanaian actress, Rosemond Alade Brown, popularly known as Akuapem Poloo has been granted bail following her sentencing.

The Criminal Court of the Accra High Court granted the actress bail pending an appeal of her 90-day sentence.

After her sentencing on Friday, April 16th, her lawyer, Mr Andrews Kudzo Vortia told the media he would be applying for an appeal of her sentence.

Mr Vortia later revealed in subsequent interviews that his appeal was backed by the Attorney General.

“The Attorney General is of the view that the sentence was a bit harsh. So he asked if I have filed an appeal, and when I said yes, he told me that I have his backing. It is surprising to note that when the judge inquired from the prosecution what she had to say, she said the accused person is not known to the court and is a first time offender. She told the court [Akuapem Poloo] is also a single mother, and that she prays against a custodial sentence,” he told Citi FM.

The court has since granted her a bail of GHC 80,000 with three sureties while a date for the hearing for the appeal to overturn the sentence will be set.

Akuapem Poloo was arrested and arraigned before the Circuit Court, Accra on three (3) counts of offences relating to obscenity contrary to section 280 of Act 29/60 and Domestic Violence contrary of section 1(d) (iii) and (iv) and 3(2) of Act 732.
