On Wednesday, the Accra High Court awarded jailed actress Akuapem Poloo 80,000 bail.

Her bail was issued with two sureties to be justified by the judge.

Rosemond Brown, the social media star, is required to return to the case investigator every two weeks as part of her bail conditions.

She is also required to leave her passport with the court’s registrar.

Justice Ruby Aryeetey, who presided over the case, stated that she would only fly with the court’s express permission.

The claimant has already met the four grounds for bail awaiting appeal, according to the court.

The actress was sentenced to 90 days in prison by the Accra Circuit Court last week for sharing nude images of herself and her son on social media.

The sentence divided the world, with some describing it as draconian, while others believed it was proportionate to the offence.

The state, represented in court by Senior State Attorney Selasie Kuwornu, did not object to the application for bail.

This is due to the fact that the State has no power over the duration of the appeal, which could extend past the 90-day prison term, according to him.

Since pleaded guilty to allegations of publishing indecent content, participating in domestic abuse, namely behavior that in some way compromises another person’s identity or reputation, and engaging in domestic violence, namely conduct that in some way detracts from another person’s honesty and value as a human being, the actress Rosemond Brown was convicted.

The court’s decision to award the actress a prison term has elicited mixed responses from Ghanaians, with some in favour and others against.

However, days after her sentencing, the court released the full court order, which identified the 13 conditions that were weighed when she was sentenced to prison.
