HARRY Dunn’s family have blasted Boris Johnson after he admitted alleged killer Anne Sacoolas is unlikely to return to the UK.

The 19-year-old was killed after being hit by a car near an RAF base which is used by the American military on August 27, 2019.

Boris Johnson dashed any hopes of bringing Harry Dunns killer to justice

The suspect involved in the case Anne Sacoolas, was initially granted diplomatic immunity after the crash and returned to the US.

The 42-year old American was allegedly driving the car, and is Britain is now seeing to extradite her, a move the US has branded “highly inappropriate“.

Mr Johnson said the appeal was right, but admitted the familys wait for justice was likely to go on.

He said: “I think the chances of America actually responding by sending Anne Sacoolas to this country are very low.

“That’s not what they do. But we will continue to make every effort that we can.”

The Dunn family’s adviser and spokesperson, Radd Seiger, hit out at the comments, warnings his views were “diametrically opposed” to Mr Johnson’s.

He said: “I do not know what is in the Prime Minister’s mind in making those comments.

“The parents and I have not yet had the opportunity to sit down and talk with him, but we expect to do so within the next few days.

“Anne Sacoolas will be coming back to the UK to face justice. Unlike the Prime Minister, there is no doubt in my mind.”
The US State Department maintains she had diplomatic immunity at the time of the crash.

A spokesman said the request would be an abuse under these circumstances, and establish an extraordinarily troubling precedent.

Mr Johnsons comments came during a wide-ranging interview with the BBC, where the Prime Minister said he was not expecting the crisis to get worse.

He explained: They’re clearly guilty of an appalling error, I don’t think we are currently envisaging any further escalation of the tensions.

“The most important thing now is that tensions in the region calm down”.
