The US government has put Sweden under pressure in the case against rapper A$AP Rocky. CNN has published a diplomatic letter in which the presidential envoy for hostage affairs Robert O’Brien threatens with “negative consequences” if the case against the rapper is not dealt with quickly.

However, it is not clear what measures the government would take against Sweden if the case is not resolved quickly. O’Brien does write that the Americans want a quick solution and that the rapper, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, does not have to wait for the verdict in prison. O’Brien suggests in the letter that the rapper may await the verdict in a hotel. The letter is dated July 31. A day later, Swedish Attorney General Petra Lindh replied that it is up to the judge to determine where a suspect can await the verdict. Ultimately, the judge decided that A$AP Rocky may await the verdict in freedom.

The rapper then left with his company in a private plane to the United States, Swedish media report.
