Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “UK: Anne Sacoolas does not have immunity over deadly crash”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Britain insists US diplomat’s wife Anne Sacoolas does not have immunity over her deadly crash — while she plans to meet the dead teenager’s parents to apologize when they fly to New York on Sunday, according to reports.

The UK’s Foreign Secretary, Dominic Raab, wrote to the family of Harry Dunn, the 19-year-old motorcyclist killed in an August crash with Sacoolas’ car, and insisted that she can no longer claim immunity after fleeing the UK.

“The UK government’s position is that immunity, and therefore any question of waiver, is no longer relevant in Mrs. Sacoolas’s case, because she has returned home.

“The US have now informed us that they too consider that immunity is no longer pertinent,” he insisted, despite the US having “steadfastly declined” to give a waiver to get her to return.

The Dunn family’s lawyer, Mark Stephens, called Sacoolas “a fugitive from British justice” and insisted to SKY News, “She wasn’t entitled to diplomatic immunity in the first place.”
