A couple of weeks ago, Akuapem Poloo was in the news for all the wrong reasons because she was on the verge of spending 90 days in prison for sharing explicit material on social media.
In fact, it took the intervention of her lawyers at the eleventh hour to try to get her some freedom and prevent her from spending the next three months away from her son in Nsawam.
Akuapem Poloo pleaded guilt to the charges levelled against her which were hinged on the sharing of nudes photos together with her son.
Akuapem Poloo was granted bail by the Criminal Division of the High Court on Thursday, April 22, 2021, pending the appeal. She was granted bail in the sum of GHS80,000 with two sureties.
Many Ghanaians have been expecting the date of the hearing on Akuapem Poloo’s appeal case which may either send her back to the cold walls of prison or perhaps grant her perpetual freedom.
Speaking about when his client will be back in court, Lawyer for Akuapem Poloo, Andrew Vortia has stated that the High Court is yet to set a date for hearing her client’s appeal.
According to him, all records from the Circuit Court were being transferred to the High Court, after which a trial date will be set.
“Honestly, we are settling records. Records are being transmitted from the Circuit Court to the High Court. So hopefully by next week, we will settle those records, and then a date will be given for hearing of that bail.
“We must transmit to court. All that transpired at the Circuit Court must be brought to the High Court for the High Court judge to go through the whole process because he or she was not privy to what happened at the Circuit Court to help them have an informed mind to determine the appeal whether the grounds that we were fighting for is right,” he said in an interview on Citi FM.
