A lawyer for Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old black man who was shot dead while jogging through his Georgia neighborhood in February, has revealed that singer Jay-Z helped the legal team when it was unable to find a flight to attend a court hearing in Georgia.
He said the singer lent his private Jet to take the legal team fighting the case of Arbery to Georia.
Taking to Instagram lawyer Blerim Elmazi wrote, “Court hearing in Brunswick, Georgia this morning. No flights to take us there last night. @leemerrittesq and I spent hours trying to find flights or cars.”
Elmazi continued, “At 1 am we started losing hope till we got a call from Jay Z’s people at Roc Nation who chartered a flight for us to attend this hearing with the family of Ahmaud Arbery. Thankful for their support. Updates on the hearing soon.”
S. Lee Merritt, another member of the legal team also thanked Jay-Z for his help.
“When you absolutely have to be in Court to stand with your client and righteous protestors for justice … Jay Z sends his private jet,” he wrote.
“That’s part of the P.P.E plan to get us out of this Crisis (People Power Political Power Economic Power)”
