Information gathered by GhanaPlus.com said the actress is currently being held at the Osu Police Station in Accra after failing to meet the bail condition of GH₵100,000 with four sureties, two to be justified when she appeared before the court over the nude photos of herself and son she shared on her social media pages some months ago.
The two sureties, according to the court were to provide proof of ownership of any landed property worth the bail sum.
The news of her detention was made known by the host of Peace FM’s current affairs programme “The Platform” Nana Yaw Kesseh on Monday night.
“Now information in is that Rosemary Brown was in court today and the court gave her some conditions to meet to be granted bail but she was not able to meet them so she has been detained at the Osu Police Station. If she is not able to meet the conditions she would be in custody until November 23,” he said.
Rosemary Brown is facing charges of publication of obscene materials and engaging in domestic violence in a case brought before the Accra Circuit Court by Child Right International, a non-governmental organization over the nude photos of herself and her son shared on her social media pages some months ago.
