US won't extradite diplomat's wife accused of killing United Kingdom teen

The US has rejected the extradition request for Anne Sacoolas, who was charged with causing the death of teenage motorcyclist Harry Dunn by unsafe driving.

Harry Dunn, 19, died in a hospital of multiple injuries from the head-on crash of his motorbike with a vehicle on August 27, 2019 in Northamptonshire in the East Midlands of England.

Anne Sacoolas was driving on the wrong side of the road when she met 19-year-old Harry Dunn on August 27th in Northamptonshire in central England on a motorcycle. She claimed diplomatic immunity under a 1995 treaty applying to family members of staff at the Croughton base, though United Kingdom authorities say it became irrelevant once Sacoolas returned to the US.

"The prime minister urged the president to rethink the USA position so that the victim can return to the United Kingdom, work with the police and give Harry's family a chance to do justice", said an email statement from Johnson's office on the call, Bloomberg News said.

Mr Seiger said the family were taking time to process the news and would be reacting fully on Friday morning.

British foreign secretary Dominic Raab, who'd spoken to U.S. Ambassador Woody Johnson about the matter, said the U.S. response is disappointing and called it a "denial of justice". The Home Office said it was "urgently considering our options".

The US State Department did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Sacoolas' legal team did not offer a new comment on Thursday, instead referring CNN to a statement from attorney Amy Jeffress earlier in January, which said in part: "Anne is devastated by this tragic accident and would do anything she could to bring Harry back".

Asked why he thought Clinton was still talking about the 2016 election, Sanders said: "That's a good question". He added: "If any one of those elements falls off, then it's going to be very hard for a Democrat to win".


"We are disappointed in this decision", she said.

"We feel this amounts to a denial of justice, and that Anne Sacoolas should return to the UK".

"This is a lawless, corrupt administration that appears intent on attacking even its closest worldwide ally", he said of the White House. "So much for the special relationship, Mr Raab", one tweet read.

The State Department says she had diplomatic immunity and that sending her back would set a troubling precedent. "I expect him today to rise to that challenge and come and meet with me and the family and tell us what he's going to do about it". Lawyers representing the Dunn family said it is the first time in the 100-year history of the extradition treaty that such a request has been turned down by the US. It's tough if you're from the United States. She returned to the United States in October after reporting to the police that she had no plans to leave the country in the near future. "That happens to a lot of people, by the way".
