John Dumelo Expresses His Happiness Over Akuapem Poloo’s Bail

John Dumelo and Akuapem Poloo

Ghanaian actor cum politician, John Dumelo has expressed his happiness over Akuapem Poloo’s bail.

Following the report about Poloo’s bail on Wednesday, April 21, 2021, the popular actor shared a video seen by Newshuntermag.com to reiterate his earlier remarks about the possibility of her getting bail pending an appeal.

The disappointed NDC Parliamentary Candidate said he was heavily lambasted following his statement which was posted on Twitter some days ago.

John Dumelo asserted: “Under s96(1)(a) of Act 30, a person may be granted bail after conviction pending an appeal. It’s an application made by an accused person after his conviction and pending an appeal against the conviction. Bail pending appeal has been described by the courts to be very unusual.

“The courts are thus always cautious to grant bail pending an appeal. There are circumstances under which bail pending an appeal may be granted by the courts. These are set out in Fynn & Ano v The Rep [1971] 2 GLR 433.”
