On June 30, 2020, Rosemond celebrated her son’s seventh birthday and took her nude pictures together with her son, who was also half-naked and posted the same on her Instagram page, which went viral on social media.
The pictures attracted comments which accused her of undermining the dignity of her seven-year-old son among others.
The prosecution said the complainant, Mr. Bright K. Appiah, who is the Director of Child Rights International Ghana, petitioned the Director-General CID, and the matter was referred to the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU).
Rosemond, the prosecution said, was arrested and in her caution statement, admitted posting the nude picture with her son unintentionally.
A write-up accompanying the picture read: “I am naked in front of you because this is how naked I was giving birth to you, so in case you find me lying somewhere don’t pass by but see me as your mom who brought you to life.”
The prosecution held that Rosemond deliberately posted the pictures on social media.
