U.S. Warned Sweden of ‘Negative Consequences’ If ASAP Rocky Case Wasn’t Resolved in Leaked

A$AP Rocky was just released from jail while the judges in his Swedish assault case decide his fate. The announcement in court was met with cheer from onlookers. A$AP is free to leave Sweden while they await a verdict, which is expected August 14. The other 2 defendants are also released and free to leave. Prosecutors had asked that Rocky, who’s spent a month in jail, remain there because he was a flight risk, but the judges disagreed. Reading between the lines, the fact that the judges are letting him leave the country may be a sign he won’t be found guilty.

Sweden’s Prosecutor-General, Petra Lindh, denied the requests, according to a letter dated Aug. 1.

“No other prosecutor, not even I, may interfere with a specific case or try to affect the prosecutor responsible,” Lindh wrote to O’Brien. “Furthermore, when a person is charged and the case is brought before a court, only the court can decide, during or after the trial, whether or not to release the person or decide on supervised detention.”
