The International Criminal Police Organization, also known as Interpol, has issued a “Red Notice” for Anne Sacoolas, the American wanted in connection to the death of British teenage motorcyclist Harry Dunn last August.
Sacoolas was charged in the United Kingdom with causing Dunn’s death by dangerous driving after she admitted to driving on the wrong side of the road in Northampton, where her husband worked at the Air Force listening station at RAF Croughton. She returned to the US and claimed diplomatic immunity, which the U.S. government has supported despite an extradition warrant from the UK.
The Red Notice issued by Interpol means that Sacoolas is essentially considered a fugitive from justice if she attempts to leave the United States, according to Dunn family lawyer Radd Seiger.
“Red notices would not be served on valid diplomats,” Seiger told The Guardian. “It means she would be arrested if she sought to leave the United States.”
He added, “It is time for her to come back to the UK and on behalf of the family I urge the authorities both in London and Washington to make that happen. It is time to do the right thing.”
“It is a monumental scandal. The UK government know it and that is why Harry’s parents were treated like lepers. Both governments were and are terrified that this was all going to be exposed. Well thanks to the free press it has been. Parliament must now launch a full-scale inquiry into what happened.”
