The 50-year-old musician chartered a private jet for Ahmaud‘s lawyers to attend a court heading in Brunswick, Georgia, they confirmed on Instagram on Thursday (June 4).

“When you absolutely have to be in Court to stand with your client and righteous protestors for justice … Jay Z sends his private jet. That’s part of the P.P.E plan to get us out of this Crisis (People Power Political Power Economic Power),” said Merritt Law Firm founder S. Lee Merritt on Instagram.

“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. 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,” added Blerim Elmazi, a civil rights attorney, on Instagram.

If you didn’t know, Ahmaud Arbery was an unarmed 25-year-old black man who was shot to death on February 23 while jogging in Glynn County, Georgia after being pursued and confronted by two white residents who were armed and driving a pickup truck. Three men were arrested in connection with the murder after video of the shooting surfaced online, sparking a national outcry.
