Earlier this week, TMZ reported that the Swedish jail A$AP Rocky is being held in as he awaits the decision on whether he will be prosecuted for a street fight in Stockholm was "inhuman", with feces everywhere and horrible food.
This seemed to go against the stereotype of Scandinavian jails, which are known to be very accommodating to the prisoners.
The TMZ report may also be false. In an interview with a Swedish paper SVT Nyheter, Rocky's lawyer Henrik Olsson Lilja pushed back against the report, saying Rocky had been "treated properly."
Here's the Google translation of what he said:
"He has never talked to TMZ or any third party regarding the circumstances when he was arrested, ie when he was in the prison. He was then treated and treated properly. However, he has experienced the conditions in the arrest as very simple and has experienced that it smells urine in the cell in the arrest. However, not in detention. The conditions in the arrest cell can in that respect be criticized. "
"He has lacked appetite at the beginning when he was arrested but tries to eat to the best of his ability. He was to receive a visit from American staff at an early stage when he was arrested, but understood that staff from the embassy were not allowed to enter. At a later date, some day later, however, he has been visited. If this is a violation of the Vienna Convention, he cannot judge. He does not know any other information in the TMZ article. "
Rocky could face up to six years if convicted of the assault.
