John­son urges re­turn of US diplo­mat’s wife over fa­tal crash

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Global -

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.
