Jilted man posts girlfriend's nude pictures pictures on Facebook

 January 24, 2014 (Page 20)

Feeling peeved for being jilted by his fiance, a man decided to post naked pictures of his former lover on Facebook.
As if that was not enough, he added the caption, “Porn star, pay and f***”.
He then proceeded to attach his former fiance’s mobile phone number to the uploaded picture for interested persons to call.
Henry Alibah, a student, allegedly committed the offence at Mamprobi in Accra on November 25, 2013 after his 10-minute ultimatum to the complainant to rescind her decision to leave him had elapsed.
He was Wednesday put before the Accra Circuit Court, presided over by Ms Ellen Vivian Amoah, and charged with causing emotional, verbal or psychological abuse, contrary to Sections 1 (b) (iv) and Section 3 (2) of the Domestic Violence Act 737/07.
The court entered a ‘not guilty’ plea on his behalf and remanded him to reappear on February 5, 2014.

Facts of the case

Inspector Kofi Atimbiri told the court that the complainant had, for the past two years, been the fiance of the accused person.
However, the complainant called off the relationship three months ago via a telephone call but her decision infuriated the accused person, who insisted that the relationship should continue.
According to the prosecution, Alibah called the complainant and warned her to return to him or have her naked pictures posted on Facebook.
On November 25, 2013, the accused person again called the complainant on phone and gave her 10 minutes to change her mind or have her naked pictures uploaded on Facebook.
He uploaded the pictures after the 10-minute ultimatum when he was convinced that the complainant was not prepared to return to him.
The complainant’s friends saw her naked pictures on Facebook and quickly drew her attention to them.
She later reported the matter to the police, resulting in the arrest of the accused person.
