An Accra High Court has dismissed an appeal by actress Rosemond Alade Brown, popularly referred to as Akuapem Poloo.
Rosemond Brown had filed an appeal at the court challenging the 90-day jail term handed her by the Accra Circuit Court earlier in April this year.
But the Appeals Court Judge presiding over the case, Justice Aryee ruled that “This court will not interfere and the appeal is therefore dismissed”.
This means Rosemond Brown will continue to serve her jail term.
On April 16, 2021, an Accra Circuit Court presided over by Ms Christiana Cann sentenced Akuapem Poloo to 90 days imprisonment for publishing on social media a nude picture of her standing in front of her son.
This was after she had pleaded guilty to the charge of 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 (Act 732), 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.
