Interpol have issued Red Notice for the arrest of the wife of a US intelligence official, Anne Sacoolas, who was accused of killing a teenage boy from Northamptonshire, UK.
The tragedy took place last August when 19-year-old Harry Dunn died after his motorcycle crashed into Sacoolas car outside RAF Croughton, the U.S. military base. Right after that, Sacoolas claimed diplomatic immunity and fled to the U.S.
Sacoolas was charged with causing death by dangerous driving, but the U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo refused to extradite her, claiming that she had diplomatic immunity under the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations. The victim’s family has been tirelessly fighting for justice ever since.
On May 11th Harry Dunn’s parents finally received an email from Northamptonshire Police, claiming that Anne Sacoolas is now “Wanted Internationally” and “should she leave the USA the wanted circulations should be enacted”, reports the Telegraph. While Interpol’s Red Notices are not akin to international arrest warrants, they work as a request to law enforcement globally “to locate and provisionally arrest a person pending extradition, surrender, or similar legal action.”
The senior U.S. officials have previously refused to meet with Dunn’s family because they intended to sue the U.S. government.
