Akuapem Poloo granted GHc80, 000 bail pending appeal

Actress Rosemond Brown popularly known as Akuapem Poloo, has been granted GHc80, 000 bail with two sureties by the Criminal Division of the Accra High Court presided over by Justice Ruby Aryeetey.

The bail is pending the appeal of her 90 days jail sentence for posting nude pictures of herself with her son.

Her lawyer, Andrew Vortia, in the bail application indicated among others that “the ninety (90) days sentence is so short that if the applicant [Akuapem Poloo] is not admitted to bail immediately, by the time the appeal is heard, she would have finished serving the sentence.”

The application also stated that Poloo is “a single parent and a young offender and as such, her first brawl with the law, ought not to have been met with a custodial sentence as the first option in the circumstances of the case.”

In addition to the bail, Akuapem Poloo is to report to the case Investigator every two weeks and is to deposit her passport with the registrar of the court.

The court said, she will only travel with the express permission of the court.
