Harry Dunn’s mother urges Joe Biden to ‘reconsider US position’ on suspect

Harry Dunn's mother Charlotte Charles appeals to US presidential candidate Joe Biden to "reconsider the US's position" on her son's alleged killer should he win the election on November 3. Mrs Charles’s 19-year-old son was killed when his motorbike crashed into a car outside a US military base in Northamptonshire on August 27 last year. The US asserted diplomatic immunity for suspect Anne Sacoolas following the crash and she was able to return to her home country – despite later admitting she had been driving on the wrong side of the road for 20 seconds before the teenager’s death. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo rejected an extradition request for 43-year-old Sacoolas after the CPS charged her with causing Mr Dunn’s death by dangerous driving – describing the decision as “final”.
