Contact: Deanna Congileo,, 404-420-5108

With sadness, The Carter Center confirms the shooting death of a British security consultant at our Juba, South Sudan, office compound on Feb. 17, 2015. Carter Center founders, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, and his wife, Rosalynn, as well as the staff of The Carter Center, extend their deep condolences to the friends and family of the consultant, who worked closely as part of our team.

The name of the consultant is not being released to protect the privacy of the family. Investigations into the death are being handled by appropriate authorities, and further comment will not be forthcoming from The Carter Center.

The Carter Center has worked in South Sudan for more than 25 years to promote peace and democracy, and the alleviation of suffering from preventable diseases.
