Harry Dunn parents vow they will get diplomat wife’s extradited as driving lessons for US staff at RAF base introduced – The Sun
THE parents of Harry Dunn today vowed they will spend their life getting the wife of a US diplomat extradited to face justice – as it was revealed US staff will receive driver training at the RAF base.
Harry was just 19-years-old when he was killed when his motorbike collided with a car close to RAF Croughton in August last year.
Suspect Anne Sacoolas, 42, is believed to have been driving on the wrong side of the road at the time of the crash – later fleeing to the US.
Overnight, it was revealed police will give driver training to US staff working the RAF base.
Northants Chief Constable Nick Adderley said there would be lessons on the Highway Code at RAF Croughton, a US communications station.
It came after two further incidents of American staff driving on the wrong side of the road.
And Harry's parents today told Good Morning Britain they had been left feeling "immediately sick" of the near-misses.
Mum Charlotte said: "We are working so hard to make sure this doesn't happen again and seeing this footage goes to show, what we are doing is going to be worthwhile.
"All you see is what Harry then saw – the vehicle that Anne was driving is of the same colour, shade, same size."
The footage of the near-miss near RAF Croughton emerged as police revealed details of a separate incident in which a police vehicle was struck by a car being driven on the wrong side of the road in October.
Harry's mum Charlotte and dad Tim also vowed they would never stop trying to get justice for their teen son.
Charlotte said: "It doesn't matter how long it takes.
"One hundred per cent, she has to come back at some point.
"If we make it our life's work like we said we will, we will do that."
And she said the idea of diplomatic immunity never meant for US citizens to escape justice.
The couple also revealed how devastated they had been to see Anne Sacoolas back behind the wheel in the US recently.
RAF Croughton became the focus of an international controversy after Mr Dunn was killed in a head-on collision with a car on August 27 last year.
Wife of a US intelligence official, Anne Sacoolas, 42, was charged for his death and is believed to have been driving on the wrong side of the road.
But she claimed diplomatic immunity after the collision and fled to the US. She has since refused to return to face justice despite pleas from Harry's family and UK officials.
The US State Department has also said a UK extradition request for Mrs Sacoolas is highly inappropriate and would be an abuse.
