The prison governor refuted a previous report describing it as “inhumane” and “horrific.”
“A$AP Rocky is being held in a Swedish jail with shockingly inhumane conditions — feces hurled about and not cleaned up, wretched food and facilities that are not fit for human beings,” the report said, referencing unnamed sources.
Now, the governor of the prison has refuted the report and its claims, saying that it’s in “good condition.”
Speaking to Radio 1 Newsbeat, Fredrik Wallin wasn’t able to specifically talk about Rocky, but he did talk about the general condition of the Kronoberg prison where the rapper is at.
After being renovated in the last few years and its prison cells reconstructed, prisoners at Kronoberg normally live in cells that contain a desk, a bed with a mattress, and a TV.
Wallin said that those in Swedish remand prison — where people stay while awaiting trial — receive three meals each day, and that a professional cleaning company “immediately sanitises” and cleans an area following food spillages or accidents that result in blood.
“This is done for the sake of the prisoners as well as for our staff, for them to have decent working conditions,” he said.
Wallin also noted that remand prisons do contain some solitary cells but they’re commonly reserved for violent prisoners after a formal written decision has been made. A$AP Ferg had previously claimed that Rocky was in solitary confinement.READ: “I’m Innocent”: A$AP Rocky Arrested In Sweden After Video Surfaces Of Him In Street Fight
