Call For Chris Brown Prosecution In Ghana
"He promoted an illegality," Ghanaian youth activist Jonathan Osei-Owusu, told Radio.com. "You can see from the video and yet he was let go free."
Osei-Owusu is the executive director of Perfector of Sentiments [POS], a youth advocacy organization in Ghana. He is leading the campaign to have Chris Brown stand trial for promoting the public smoking of marijuana to a stadium full of young people.
In a petition obtained by Radio.com Osei-Owusu calls on key figures in Ghana, including Parliament and the U.S. Ambassador in Ghana, to act. He accuses Brown of inciting young people to rage against their country's laws.
"He is on video to have encouraged the audience to take up arms against people who stand in their way to smoking weed," the statement reads. "In our prisons, many are incarcerated for same." more on this story
