{MIDDAYS WITH JAZZY MCBEE} REV. AL SHARPTON GETS STATE DEPARTMENT TO RELEASE STATEMENT ABOUT A$AP ROCKY

0

WITH SHARPTON ON THE TEAM, HOW SOON DO YOU THINK IT’LL TAKE FOR ROCKY TO GET RELEASED?

Rev. Al Sharpton and his National Action Network have joined the fight to free A$AP from Sweden officials. He released a press release urging members of Congress to demand the State Department to not only intervene , but to also allow him to visit A$AP as his minister.

“Reports of the conditions in A$AP’s jail cell and violation of his consular visitation rights are concerning,” Sharpton said in a statement. “We at National Action Network are appealing directly to the Swedish authorities for complete transparency and A$AP’s swift return home.”

A spokesperson for the State Department released an exclusive statement saying the Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo is fully aware of the circumstances and is monitoring the situation.

“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 reunited with friends and family soon.”

A petition urging Swedish officials to release A$AP Rocky has garnered over 360,000 signatures in one day.

We hope A$AP Rocky is released soon.
