Ghanaian poet and social commentator has said that the court should not sacrifice actress, Rosemond Brown, popularly known as Akuapem Poloo just to prove a point.

According to Chief Moomen, the decision taken by the court for sentencing Akuapem Poloo to 90-day imprisonment for sharing naked photos of her son whiles celebrating his seventh birthday on Instagram is not going to serve as a deterrent to others.

He opined that although he is not in favour of her act, he thinks the actress has had a lot of black lash and criticism from the public.

“From the very beginning there was a huge public condemnation so let’s underline that she’s being condemned enough there’s been a lot of criticism of which people has called her all kinds of names for it.

“So it’s not as if we’re trying to justify that she has the right to do whatever she likes even tough in some way she does the question that we are debating is whether the punishment that was given to her as appropriate for the misdemeanour that she is claimed to have committed and whether that punishment serves any practical purpose,” he said on Joy FM.

Mr Moomen said if the judge wants to make a clear case against nudity, “she should petition a Member of Parliament to introduce a private members bill and then we can have specificity.”

The poet added that Akuapem Poloo is not the platform to be used as a scapegoat if a case of nudity is to be made.

“Do not sacrifice that young girl because you want to have to prove a point, don’t use her as a sacrificial lamb,” he told Evans Mensah.

Mr Mommen also described the pulling down of obscene images of Akuapem Poloo by some social media platforms following her conviction as knee jerk reactions.

“As a society, if we agree that we don’t want some form of nudity on our social media platforms which in itself is debatable then we have to make the laws extremely clear on that,” he stated on Ghana Connect.

Chief Moomen also indicated that he doesn’t “think it is in the place of the law to legislate on issues of morality because you begin to drop into a slippery slope when you let the long arm of governance of law of law begin to legislate.”

“Then let’s legislate against fornication, let’s legislate against adultery, let’s legislate against the mirage of morally decadence activities that are holding our country back,” he added.
