The Police Service has revealed that actress Rosemond Brown, popularly known as Akuapem Poloo, is yet to honour an invitation by the police after posting a nude photo of herself and her seven-year-old son to celebrate his birthday on social media.
Subsequently, the Executive Director of Child Right International, Bright Appiah petitioned the Police to investigate the matter after the actress was criticised for the act.
Speaking on Joy FM’s Midday Wednesday, the Director of the Anti-Human Trafficking Unit, Supt Mike Baah, said the police has commenced preliminary investigations into the issue.
It was therefore important for Akuapem Poloo to honour the invitation for interrogations and further clarify whether or not the allegations are true.
Supt Baah also indicated that, the police will charge the actress based on the evidence they gather after their probe.
Highlighting that Akuapem Poloo could be charged with indecent exposure or child psychological abuse.
“If indeed what we saw on social media is proved to be true, then we can charge her with certain offences. We can charge her with indecent exposure as the criminal and other offence Act (Act 29). We can also look at abusing the child psychologically which is also a crime under the Act 732.”
“We have other offences we can look at depending on the evidence that we will gather through our investigations,” he stated.
Meanwhile, the actress in a video posted, on Tuesday, apologised for the photograph she posted.
She said she did not mean to offend anyone but was trying to send a message while using the photo as an “artistic impression.”
“What I was saying was that, no matter how naked you see your parent, don’t run away from them. Get close to them and cloth them,” she said in the video making rounds on social media.
However, a Child Rights Advocate and Executive Director of Child Online Africa, Awo Aidam Amenyah was of the view that both mother and child need counseling.
According to her, what the mother did is fundamentally wrong and must not be downplalayed since it could take a severe toll on the child’s mind.
“The child needs protection and some sort of reintegration. Research shows that any child who is introduced to porn below the age of 12, has the tendency of reduced empathy, intimacy level and in worst-case scenarios rape people.
“So it is not a matter of she won’t do it again,” she added.
