Merritt announced the three suspects charged with Arbery’s murder will have a bond hearing Thursday morning in Georgia. Merritt said it’s appalling that a bond hearing will take place, adding, “We don’t think any bond is reasonable for these brutal suspects.” He says he’s assured the family “we’re confident they will not get bond. We believe in the rule of law.” Merritt confirmed the family will attend Thursday’s hearing.
The attorneys representing the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery are holding a news conference to discuss getting justice in the courts AND the United Nations.
Attorneys Ben Crump and Lee Merritt will speak Tuesday morning — along with criminal justice advocate and CNN analyst, Van Jones — in an online forum set up by Team Roc.
TMZ We’re told Crump and Merritt will take questions from reporters and hit topics including the upcoming bond hearing for Ahmaud’s alleged murderers, Minnesota AG Keith Ellison taking on George Floyd’s case and the next steps for bringing the 3 cases to the United Nations. Presumably, they want the U.N. to deem all three killings human rights violations.
The lawyers are also representing Breonna Taylor’s family and pursuing justice after police killed her in a case of mistaken identity. The virtual news conference begins at 9 AM PT.
