Harry Dunn’s parents have declined to meet the American woman who was responsible for their son’s death because they learnt she was in the White House during the parent’s talks with US President Donald Trump.

Tim Dunn and Charlotte Charles said “the bombshell was dropped” that Anne Sacoolas was in a room next door to meet them as they discussed their case with the US president yesterday.
The son Harry, 19, was killed riding his motorbike when he was in a collision involving Mrs Sacoolas, the wife of a US diplomat, outside an RAF base in Northamptonshire in August as she drove on the wrong side of the road.

After meeting the President, Ms Charles told reporters outside the White House “We made it very clear, as we’ve said all along… we would still love to meet with her but it has to be on our terms and on UK soil.

“She needs to come back and face the justice system.”

During the meeting, the President informed the parents that Mrs Sacoolas would not be returning to the UK, but he would look at the position “from a different angle” after their talks yesterday.

Sacoolas was allowed to return to the US after being granted diplomatic immunity because of her husband’s work, and Harry’s parents have travelled to the US to demand she faces justice for her actions in the death.

Speaking to reporters the mother said “When  President Trump held my hand, I gripped it a lot tighter and I was honest with him and just said, as I said a while ago, ‘if it was your son you would be doing the same as us. He actually gripped my hand a little bit tighter and said ‘yes I would be And that’s when he said he would try and look at this from a different angle.”

The Foreign Office has said Mrs Sacoolas no longer has diplomatic immunity because she is back on US soil, this means the case can now be taken forward by Northamptonshire Police.
