The Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection has warned the general public to desist from sharing nude pictures on Social Media because it constitutes a serious offence punishable by law.

The caution comes days after an actress, Rosemond Brown shared a nude photograph of herself and her 7-year-old son to celebrate his birthday.

In the widely criticized photograph, the naked actress, widely known as Akuapem Poloo squatted before her son, both staring into each other’s eyes and holding hands.

The actress has since apologized for the picture, despite maintaining that she did that to send a message about not neglecting destitute people.

In a statement on Wednesday, signed by the Sector Minister, Cynthia Mamle Morrison, the Ministry condemned the act, describing it as degrading, pornographic and an indecent exposure.

“The Ministry condemns this act, which is classified as indecent exposure of the child, an act of pornography, degrading and also against the Children’s Act, 1998 (Act 560) and the Criminal and Other Offences Act, (Act 30),” it said.

It then warned that posting of nude pictures on Social Media at all the times is a serious offence and all must desist from it, adding that the Ministry will liaise with the appropriate agencies to deal with the matter.

Meanwhile, the actress who was expected to report to the Police CID on Wednesday is yet to respond to the invitation. Police however says she is likely to be charged with indecent exposure after their investigation.
