Harry Dunn crash suspect wanted internationally

The alleged driver of the car that killed teenager Harry Dunn is now wanted internationally by Interpol

THE suspect in the case of British teenager Harry Dunn is reported to be ‘wanted internationally’ after an Interpol notice.

The notice is in relation to a crash that took place in August last year in Northamptonshire in which the suspect, Anne Sacoolas, is alleged to have been driving on the wrong side of the road when her car struck Mr Dunn.

Despite being interviewed by police at the time and advised not to leave the country, Ms Sacoolas left on what is believed to be a US Air Force flight later that evening. She is a former CIA operative and also married to a US government employee and used the veil of diplomatic immunity as a cover to leave the country.

What does a Red Interpol Notice mean to Harry Dunn's killer?

The Red Notice that Sacoolas has been issued is described as the "closest instrument to an international arrest warrant in use today", and only has one notice that sits above it that can only be requested by the United Nations Security Council.

The details of the Red Notice are as follows:

To seek the location/arrest of a person wanted by a judicial jurisdiction or an international tribunal with a view to his/her extradition

Speaking to the BBC, Mr Dunn's mother Charlotte Charles said: "It's been a terrible time for us. We are utterly bereft and heartbroken and miss our Harry every minute of every single day."

She said the latest development was "important news" and the family were "in pieces".

"I just want to urge Mrs Sacoolas to come back to the UK and do the right thing," she said.

"Face justice and maybe then our two families can come together after the tragedy and build a bridge."
