British officials are asking the Trump administration to reconsider granting diplomatic immunity to a U.S. suspect in the death of a 19-year-old motorcyclist. Harry Dunn died after he was struck by a car in late August near an Air Force base in central England. British police say U.S. citizen Anne Sacoolas had been driving on the wrong side of the road ahead of the crash. They say she fled the country after learning that Dunn had died. Sacoolas is the wife of a U.S. intelligence officer, and the State Department has argued she has full diplomatic immunity. Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday called on her to return to the U.K.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson: “I do not think that it can be right to use the process of diplomatic immunity for this type of purpose, and I hope that Anne Sacoolas will come back and will engage properly with the processes of laws that are carried out in this country.”
