The lawyer for social media personality Rosemond Brown, also known as Akuapem Poloo, Andrew Vortia, has stated that the High Court has yet to set a date for hearing her client’s appeal.

Mr. Vortia told Eyewitness News that all records from the Circuit Court were being transferred to the High Court, and that a trial date would be set after that.

“To be honest, we’re settling records. The Circuit Court’s records are being transferred to the High Court. So, hopefully, we’ll be able to settle those records by next week, and then a date for the bail hearing will be set. We need to send this to court. Everything that happened in Circuit Court must be brought to the High Court for the High Court judge to go through the entire process because he or she was not privy to what happened in Circuit Court to help them have an informed mind to determine whether the grounds that we were fighting for are correct.”
