Johnson urges return of US diplomat’s wife over fatal crash
London: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Monday that he wanted a US diplomat’s wife who was involved in a fatal car crash to return to Britain and that it was wrong for her to have used diplomatic immunity to leave the country.
“I hope that Anne Sacoolas will come back and will engage properly with the processes of law as they are carried out in this country,” Johnson said in a television interview, adding the issue was being raised with the US ambassador in London. “If we can’t resolve it, then of course I will be raising it myself personally with the White House.”
Harry Dunn, 19, died in August after a road collision near RAF Croughton, an air force base in Northamptonshire that is used by the US. Northamptonshire police’s chief constable, Nick Adderley, said that investigators knew that a vehicle which left the RAF base was on the wrong side of the road at the time of the accident.
