  • Witnesses at A$AP Rocky trial didn’t see rapper hit man with bottle

Senior District Court Judge Per Lennerbrant told the court he would hand down the verdicts on August 14.

"I've always said throughout this whole ordeal, going on a month now, that these young men were innocent, that, in fact, they were pushed to the precipice and had to react in self-defense", Espaillat said.

Although the American rapper has been released from Swedish jail and returned to the USA, the hype surrounding the high-profile case over his reported brawl in Stockholm hasn't seemed to subside.

A$AP Rocky thanked his fans for their support during this "very difficult" time.

The case heightened tensions between the United States and Sweden last month after Trump urged the Swedish prime minister to release the rapper.

Following his release, the rapper took to Instagram to thank those who helped him get released. A number of performers like Tyler The Creator vowed to boycott Sweden until the rapper was released from prison.

It is not clear whether A$AP Rocky and friends were free to return home, but various sources have reported that they have left or are about to leave Sweden via private plane.

Around 20 A$AP Rocky fans had gathered outside the court on Friday chanting "Free Rocky" and playing his music.

In his summarising argument, prosecutor Daniel Suneson said the actions on June 30 of the three accused could not be seen as self-defence. "Next thing I know, my security guard was lifting one of them", the rapper testified, adding that the situation "got a little scary". She said she heard the bottle being crushed, though she couldn't say whether Mayers' entourage threw the bottle to the ground or hit Jafari with it. A$AP Rocky, along with the other two men, are then charged with assault, and the trial is held this week.

Although A$AP Rocky has posted videos on Instagram that he says vindicate him, prosecutors say that the footage had been selectively edited to leave out damning details. He has cancelled several shows across Europe due to his detention.
