Rosemond Alade Brown, popularly known as Akuapem Poloo, has been granted bail by the Criminal Court 2 Division of the High Court after her lawyer filed for an appeal against her 90-day sentencing by the Circuit Court.

The bail was granted pending hearing on the appeal filed on Monday, April 19 by lawyer Andrews Kudzo Vortia.

The bail was at a cost of GH¢80,000 with two sureties, both to be justified.

She is to report to the police every two weeks and can only travel at the express permission of the courts.

She is, therefore, to deposit her passport with the registrar of the court.

The High Court presided over by Justice Ruby Aryeetey said the applicant satisfied all four grounds of bail, pending the appeal.

Akuapem Poloo was slapped with a 90-day sentence on Friday, April 16 by the Circuit Court presided over by Mrs Christiana Cann.

She had pleaded guilty to all three counts she was charged with.

Despite accepting her fate and promising to be back stronger, Akuapem Poloo’s lawyer decided to appeal the ruling, claiming it was harsh.

He wanted a non-custodial sentence instead.
