|Causing death by dangerous driving|
Anne Elizabeth Goodwin Sacoolas is a CIA officer. She was named by Sky News as the driver involved in a crash in the UK which killed the 19 year old motorcyclist Harry Dunn on 27. August, 2019. The US State Department claimed that she had diplomatic immunity, but the UK FCO did not accept this. She fled to US on a USAF plane and the US government denied an extradition request without a legal justification. Interpol issued a red notice for her in May 2020. On 24 April 2020, Craig Murray wrote:
Anne Sacoolas was reportedly driving on the right-hand side of the road when her SUV collided head on with the motorbike of Harry Dunn.
Mystery still surrounds the exact circumstances of how the Sacoolas family were able to flee in the days after the crash, but the US government claim they notified the Foreign Office that they were leaving.
The US government denied an extradition request. The US State Department stated that "The driver was the spouse of an accredited diplomat to the United Kingdom", although Craig Murray noted that since "there is no Jonathan Sacoolas on the official Diplomatic list. Neither Sacoolas nor his wife has any right to claim diplomatic immunity under the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations".
Anne Sacoolas wrote around 7 weeks after the crash to Dunn's family to express her “deepest sympathies and apologies”.
