In a statement to Politico, a spokesperson said: “There are certainly some facts about the arrest and detention that raise concerns.
# We expect all governments, including Sweden, to treat American citizens fairly and with respect. We hope to see ASAP Rocky and his colleagues back on tour and soon be reunited with friends and family. & # 39;
Senior officials would closely monitor the procedure.
Swedish prosecutors must decide no later than Friday whether Rocky will file charges.

Rocky was detained in Stockholm last week shortly after a performance in the city via a video in which he was caught on June 30 in a street fight with two men.
He claims that the men continued to follow him, challenged him and first waved to his safety, causing the fight.
In his first session, a judge ordered him to hold for a maximum of two weeks while the police were investigating.
A different court ruling would then be necessary if the police needed more time to conduct their investigation.

Lawyers for the artist appealed to the court of appeal that instituted it and then to the Supreme Court, which refused to hear the case.
In their first verdict, the judge said Mayers is a flight risk and is likely to leave the country if it is released.
The rapper, who is in the middle of a European tour, has already been forced to cancel shows in Norway, Poland, Ireland and Great Britain because of the arrest.
Fans, as well as fellow musicians, have openly called on the Swedish authorities to release the American entertainer.
