BBC/London: There will be “no haggle” over Harry Dunn’s death and investigations of Prince Andrew’s Jeffery Epstein connections, the government says.
Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab responded after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was asked if there was a “deal to be done” regarding the cases.
Mr. Raab stressed the extradition treaty with the US is “rules-based” and there would be no “barter” over the cases.
The 19-year-old died after a crash in Northamptonshire in August, before suspect Anne Sacoolas left for the US, citing diplomatic immunity over the case.
In his response to the question, Mr. Pompeo said Mr. Dunn’s case and the investigation into allegations about Prince Andrew would be “resolved on their merits”.
At an event in London alongside Mr. Raab, Mr. Pompeo was asked if there was “a deal to be done” over Prince Andrew and Mrs. Sacoolas.
The secretary of state replied: “Yeah, I can answer that. I am confident each of these cases will be resolved on their relative merits.”
“We both see that the extradition treaty serves both sides. And we want to make it work. So, that’s the approach.
