US State Department Demands Release of Rapper A$ap Rocky Arrested in Sweden since July 3

184

New York born Rapper, A$AP Rocky who was arrested by Swedish Police while on tour in Sweden has never being released since July 3rd, 2019. And the American Government has gotten wind of his arrest and has being monitoring the situation.

Hence the US State Department has stepped in, issuing a what seems like an ultimatum to the Swedish Authority.

“There are certainly some facts about the arrest and detention that raise concerns,” a department spokesperson said in a statement. “We expect all governments, including Sweden, to treat American citizens fairly and with respect. We hope to see A$AP Rocky and his colleagues back on tour and reunited with friends and family soon.”

Swedish prosecutors must decide by Friday whether to charge Rocky, who is being held in solitary confinement, or ask a court to let them hold him longer.

Rocky and his entourage, who were in Stockholm for the Smash music festival, were walking around the city “minding their own business” on June 30 when they were verbally harassed by two men who had started following them, according to a person close to the rapper.
