Akuapem Poloo Will Not Be Given Any Special Treatment In Prison - Prison PRO Reveals

When asked if socialite Akuapem Poloo, who was sentenced to 90 days in prison for posting nude photos of herself and her child online, will be given a separate cell and enjoy some freedom as a celebrity, ASP Opoku said the constitution of the land and the rules that govern the operations of the Prisons Service make provisions for separate treatment for celebrities who are sentenced to 90 days in prison.

He went on to say that Akuapem Poloo was charged with obscene publication and sentenced to 90 days in jail, but that as a citizen of the country, she is entitled to the 1/3 remission scheme.

According to the corrections communicator, if Akuapem Poloo maintains good behavior while completing her sentence, she would likely complete 60 of the initial 90 days.

He went on to say that musicians such as Geeman, Ramzy, the late Ibrahim Sima (Exopa), and Kwaw Kesse had firsthand experience with Ghana's prison system and culture, and can testify to the fact that all inmates are treated equally, and that they, as well-known figures, followed the rules in the prison yard during their stay.

ASP Opoku said, "Taking effective safe custody and reformation of inmates in a developing world is not ordinary because expertise, strict adherence to human rights, and consistent support from stakeholders are needed in achieving results," and the Prisons Service has been doing so for decades to ensure public safety.

He emphasized that the prison remission scheme is earned by eligible prisoners through a study industry, good behavior, and a positive attitude when completing their sentences, and that it is not a favor reserved for celebrities or famous figures who are sentenced to prison by a court of law.
