Bicameral Delegation Statement On Ghaisar Case

June 10, 2022 (Washington, D.C.) – U.S. Representative Don Beyer (D-VA), Senators Mark Warner (D-VA) and Tim Kaine (D-VA), Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC), and Representatives Jennifer Wexton (D-VA) and Gerry Connolly (D-VA) today issued the following statement on the announcement from the U.S. Department of Justice that it would not reopen an investigation into the case of two U.S. Park Police officers who shot and killed Northern Virginian Bijan Ghaisar in 2017:

“We are deeply disappointed in the Justice Department’s decision not to reopen the investigation into the killing of Bijan Ghaisar by U.S. Park Police. Nearly five years after he was killed, Bijan’s family, friends, and community still are no closer to an understanding of how the events of that night could justify his being shot to death by police. We are thinking of the Ghaisar family today, and will continue to stand with them in their pursuit of justice.”
