ATLANTA – Governor Sonny Perdue issued the following statement today encouraging Georgians to boycott travel to Aruba:

“I want to join my friend, Governor Bob Riley, in his call for a travel boycott of Aruba. This boycott is necessary because Aruban authorities have failed to conduct a serious investigation of the disappearance of Natalee Holloway. We have no quarrel with good citizens of Aruba, but the actions of their leaders cannot be taken lightly. I encourage my fellow Georgians to stand with the Holloway family and the people of Alabama who have been touched by this deeply saddening case.”
