It could be recalled that Nana Agradaa was arrested on April 22 by a joint team of police and national security operatives who raided and shut down her two television stations.
Consequently, Nana Agradaa was charged with offenses of charlatanic display contrary to section 137 of the Criminal Offences Act, 1960. She was charged under section 110 of the Electronic Transaction Act 2008, Act 772.
On April 22, Agradaa pleaded not guilty to the charges and was granted a GH¢500,000 self-recognizance bail.
But appearing before the Accra Circuit Court presided over by Emmanuel Essandoh for the final verdict, Agradaa has been handed a fine of GH¢46,000 for operating television channels without certification and displaying what the court deems to be ‘charlatanic material.’
Agradaa according to court documents was fined GH¢36,000 for operating TV without appropriate documents from the authorities and failure to pay the said amount will see her spend three years in prison.
Besides, she was also fined GH¢10,000 for the display of charlatanic materials on live television. A default in payment will see her spend another year in prison.
