Harry Dunn's family to bring a private prosecution against Dominic Raab

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2020/may/28/family-of-harry-dunn-to-bring-private-prosecution-against-dominic-raab

They claim that Raab did not have the authority to allow Anne Sacoolas to return to America after the incident, while there was an ongoing police investigation and while the issue of her diplomatic immunity had not been resolved. They also allege that Raab misled parliament in statements he made about Sacoolas’s return to America.

So she's now admitted driving on the wrong side of the road, and is considering a "virtual trial" which will obviously be from the safety of America.
Not quite sure what that accomplishes if she's found guilty, because i can't see her rushing over here in a hurry to deal with any sentencing?


Oh, i just read that the parents will only take part in a virtual trial if it's under UK Law and she agrees to serve or deal with any sentence that may be given, if found guilty obviously.


Can't see that happening!

Odd that she should now publicly admit an offense, from the safety of the US of course. I think there is more of this to come.

The family have said that they "feel hopeful" now that Biden is going to be President, but I think those hopes will be dashed quickly.

Yes, Biden isn't Trump, but he's still going to look after American citizens first...

I agree. The problem (and the current court case) is the Foreign Office. At best they took their eye off the ball. At worst they are complicit.
