Boris Johnson has raised the death of a teenage motorcyclist killed after colliding with a car being driven by a US citizen, with President Joe Biden.
The Prime Minister reiterated the UK wanted justice for Harry Dunn, 19, at a meeting ahead of the G7 summit.
An SUV being driven by Anne Sacoolas, allegedly crashed into Harry’s motorbike outside a US military base in Northamptonshire in August 2019.
Mrs Sacoolas was charged with causing death by dangerous driving.
At his first face-to-face meeting with President Biden in Cornwall on Thursday, Mr Johnson reasserted the UK government’s position on the case.
As the wife of a US intelligence official based at RAF Croughton, Mrs Sacoolas had diplomatic immunity asserted on her behalf following the crash.
Soon afterwards she returned to the USA sparking an international controversy.
The Dunn family said they were “very pleased” to see the case raised at the “first available opportunity”.
“The PM raised the tragic Harry Dunn case with President Biden and reiterated that the UK wants to see justice done for the family,” a No 10 spokesman said.
Speaking for the Dunn family, Radd Seiger said: “Harry’s parents are very pleased to see that the PM has taken the opportunity to raise the case with President Biden at the first available opportunity. read more..
