Stockholm District Court has granted the prosecutor more time to continue the preliminary investigation of the case concerning the American artist who has been detained since 5 July on probable cause on suspicion of assault in Stockholm.

“The Court decided that the artist will remain in custody until 25 July, because of the flight risk. This gives us time to complete the investigation.”, says Daniel Suneson.

If the prosecutor decides to indict the artist, the new time limit has been set to 25 July at 11 am, at the latest.

The District Court decided that the other two detained in the case also will remain in custody.

Case number in Stockholm District Court: B 9283-19
