Social media personality and actress, Rosemond Brown known in showbiz circles as Akuapem Poloo has been handed a 90-day jail term for posting naked photos of herself and her son on social media which has generated a lot of conversation. A section of the Ghanaian populace believes the judgement is harsh and will further deepen the woes of her child.
Speaking on the issue on TV3's Key Point, a private legal practitioner, Bobby Banson has described the judgement as within the parameters of the law and pure hypocrisy on the part of those saying the judgement is harsh. "Is it because she is a celebrity? The Judge was even lenient with her. She could have been handed a 3-year jail term but the Judge tempered justice with mercy and gave her 90 days. It is pure hypocrisy to say Akuapem Poloo's sentence is harsh but we complain if laws are not enforced".
"Although it is very unfortunate, we must allow our laws to work irrespective of the offender. Will we have campaigned for a less harsher judgement if it was a politician. Let us allow the laws of the land to work without interfering. If it were to be in other jurisdictions, the child would have been taken away from the mother and a stricter punishment handed over to her".
He further admonish those making demeaning commentaries on the matter against the Judge to be very careful so as to avoid contempt of court.
