Statement from PAC Regarding the Investigation of Ahmaud Arbery’s Death
Our agency has received numerous calls, emails, and messages from concerned citizens in response to media reports surrounding the tragic death of Mr. Ahmaud Arbery.
Atlantic Judicial Circuit District Attorney Tom Durden has been appointed District Attorney Pro Tempore by the Attorney General to handle the matter. The Prosecuting Attorneys’ Council stands ready to assist all prosecutors in Georgia in any matter as requested. We are confident the Georgia Bureau of Investigation will conduct a thorough, extensive, and credible investigation for DA Durden to review. We are equally confident that DA Durden will diligently follow the facts and exercise his discretion and judgment to do what is right in this case.
The Prosecuting Attorneys’ Council of Georgia is neither assigned to this case, nor can we provide information on the matter. Questions regarding the investigation of this case should be directed to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Questions regarding the prosecution of this case should be directed to DA Durden’s office.
We appreciate the concern of all citizens who have reached out to us and are awaiting the outcome of the investigation.
