U.S. en­voy’s wife flees af­ter fa­tal U.K. crash

Edmonton Sun - - NEWS -

Harry dunn was 19 when he was killed in a hit-and-run.

The prime sus­pect is the wife of an amer­i­can diplo­mat who has al­legedly fled the u.k.

Now, british Prime Min­is­ter boris John­son has asked the u.s. to re­con­sider the diplo­matic im­mu­nity of anne sa­coolas, 42.

ac­cord­ing to cops, sa­coolas pulled out on the wrong side of the road and slammed into dunn’s mo­tor­cy­cle in au­gust.

sa­coolas orig­i­nally co­op­er­ated with cops but then claimed diplo­matic im­mu­nity and fled bri­tain.

John­son’s peo­ple called the case “ex­tremely con­cern­ing” and urged the amer­i­cans to “re­con­sider their po­si­tion” so “the jus­tice process can take place”.

“I think every­body’s sym­pa­thies are with the fam­ily of Harry dunn for their tragic loss,” John­son said. “but I do not think that it can be right to use the process of diplo­matic im­mu­nity for this type of pur­pose.”

The dead teen’s par­ents have even begged u.s. Pres­i­dent don­ald Trump to take ac­tion.
