The British Foreign Secretary, Dominic Raab, said in a statement expressing British Government’s disappointment over the U.S. decision not to extradite the car crash suspect, Anne Sacoolas, to Britain.
The driver of the car, Sacoolas, returned to the U.S, claiming diplomatic immunity.
Sacoolas was subsequently charged by Britain’s Crown Prosecution Service with causing death by dangerous driving.
“We called the U.S. ambassador to Britain earlier to express the government’s disappointment.
The case of Sacoolas had been a thorn in the “special relationship” between the U.S. and Britain, prompting debates over the limits of diplomatic immunity in cases unrelated to national security.
The family spokesman, Radd Seiger, however, expressed optimism that in spite the development, he was sure of justice some day.
