Petition to Free ASAP Rocky From Jail Launches, Receives Over 65,000 Signatures In Matter of Hours
Fans have joined artists who are calling for ASAP Rocky’s release from a Swedish jail. A petition on Change.org has appeared with a goal of 75,000 signatures it has 65,000 signatures and growing.
According to his manager, Chace Infinite, Rocky is living in inhumane conditions, in solitary confinement 24 hours a day and hasn’t been able to talk to his counsel.
“Upon being detained, Rocky was denied his request to counsel which is in violation of Article 36 of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, to which Sweden is a signatory,” writes Infinite. “Everyone has the same rights to be treated fairly upon detainment and should be given fair and equal access to such rights.”
After being denied release, Rocky will have to stay in jail for two weeks with the trial to begin during the middle to end of August.
