Some emotional netizens have sought to engage in mischievous equalisation by comparing the bail out of the controversial actress, Akuapem Poloo, to the arrest of the money doubler, Nana Agradaa, on the account of having a child. They believe that the lead conveyors of “Free Akuapem Poloo” capitalised on her motherhood status to seek a bail. Therefore, what is good for the goose is good for the gander.
However, the outspoken legal professor, Kwaku Azar, has jabbed those who have embarked on that trajectory of seeking “justice” for Nana Agradaa.
According to him, Akuapem Poloo was prosecuted on the basis of injustices but he cannot ascertain the similar feature in Nana Agradaa's case.
Moreover, using motherhood as a basis for the release of a convict or an accused person can deteriorate our ineffective legal system.
“If that is the criteria then you should campaign on demolishing the prisons”, he said.
He made this statement on Facebook to reply a post by Honourable Rodney Nkrumah Boateng, ardent NPP sympathizer.
