BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - The special committee tasked with investigating the death of Ronald Greene has requested Gov. John Bel Edwards, along with members of his executive staff, appear before the panel during its next meeting scheduled for Thursday, June 16.

The bi-partisan committee, made up of Louisiana lawmakers, released a statement Wednesday, June 1:

Governor Edwards’ office confirmed that the Governor and his counsel will appear as requested.

“We are confident that this testimony will demonstrate that neither the Governor nor anyone on his staff had any role in any attempt to cover up the facts related to Mr. Greene’s death,” Executive Counsel Matthew Block wrote to Chairman Tanner Magee.
