US Diplomat wife Anne Sacoolas issued with Interpol red notice over fatal UK crash

On 12th May 2020, ABC/Reuters reports

Interpol has reportedly issued a notice for the wife of a United States diplomat wanted in Britain over a fatal car crash, in a case that has caused friction between London and Washington.

Harry Dunn, 19, died last year when his motorbike collided with a car driving on the wrong side of the road near RAF Croughton, an air force base in Northamptonshire in central England that is used by the US intelligence services.

Anne Sacoolas was charged with causing his death, but left Britain shortly after the accident, protected by diplomatic immunity and was never interviewed by police.

Radd Seiger, a spokesman for Mr Dunn’s family, wrote on Twitter that police in Northamptonshire had issued an Interpol red notice for Ms Sacoolas to be “circulated worldwide”.

The 19-year-old’s parents have called on Dominic Raab and the government to refuse any further extradition requests by the US – including that of the Wikileaks co-founder – after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo rejected extraditing Sacoolas, last month.

Mr Pompeo previously raised the prospect of “a deal to be done” over Mr Dunn’s case and the US investigation of Prince Andrew’s Jeffery Epstein connections.
