Ghanaian socialite and actress, Rosemond Alade Brown, popularly known as Akuapem Poloo could have her sentence reduced to 60 days.
The Chief Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Ghana Prisons Service, Courage Atsem said this is only possible if she behaves well whiles in jail.
Speaking in an interview on Starr FM, Atsem said people convicted for non-first degree felony offences are qualified for what he described as one-third remission sentence.
He noted “there is some that is earned on good conduct and service industry.”
“She can qualify for the one-third remission if she puts up a good behavior. Going by that means that she (Akuapem Poloo) will serve 60 days out of 90 days." he said.
Meanwhile, an opinionated Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has backed the jailing of actress Akuapem Poloo.
An Accra Circuit Court on Friday, April 16, sentenced the actress known in real life as Rosemond Brown for publishing obscene material to 90 days in prison.
Christina Cann, the judge who sat on the case highlighted her worry about the proliferation of nude photos and video on social media during the delivery of the sentence.
Commenting on the sentence described by many as “harsh”, the Assin Central lawmaker said it was not harsh enough.
“…She should have been given one year,” he stated on ‘The Seat’ show on his Net2 television.
He said the actress’ conduct was “very cheap”, stressing that “anyone who poses naked should be jailed.”
“As for me, if you are a celebrity, I don’t have a problem, but there should be some respect, some decorum. No woman can talk about this disgusting thing that your fellow woman has done. It is shameful,” he stated.
