It Is Not Enough: Law Professor Kwaku Azar Jumps To The Defence Akuapim Polo

Highly respected and widely followed law professor, Kwaku Asare known as Kwaku Azar has jumped to the defence of sentence bound social media influencer Akwapim Polo.

He made this known in his official Facebook page as he extensively made an outlined interpretation not the law that has found Rosemond Brown in trouble.

He said "We must re-examine the way that we allow the State to bully indigent defendants as well as those who do not understand the law.

I do not understand the charges leveled against Akuapim Polo and i doubt whether they are constitutional or can be proven.

Our law faculties must operate clinics to take up such issues. We need to set up a Human Rights Protection Society to take up such issues.

Judges must not accept such pleas unless they have taken affirmative steps to explain the elements of the offense to the defendant in a language that she understands and additional steps to ascertain that the defendant understands what they have explained.

It is not enough to hold annual lectures on Re Akoto when Akoto never died.

Akuapem Polo may have shown bad judgment but it is hard to see what crimes she has committed.
