Harry Dunn crash: Anne Sacoolas UK court date deferred


Harry Dunn kicked the bucket in clinic after his motorbike was engaged with an accident outside RAF Croughton

The following week’s court appearance of Anne Sacoolas over the passing of motorcyclist Harry Dunn has been delayed.

Mr Dunn, 19, kicked the bucket in an accident with a vehicle close to RAF Croughton, Northamptonshire, on 27 August 2019.

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said the deferral was to permit progressing conversations with the lawful group of US public Mrs Sacoolas.

Radd Seiger, representative for Mr Dunn’s family, said they were standing by to hear further advancements from the CPS.

Mrs Sacoolas, 44, had been driving close to the US airbase and had conciliatory invulnerability declared for her benefit by the US government following the impact.

She had the option to leave the UK thereafter.

In December 2019, the CPS approved Northamptonshire Police to accuse Mrs Sacoolas of causing passing by hazardous driving.

A removal demand for her to be brought to the UK was dismissed by the US government.

A consultation was booked for Westminster Magistrates’ Court on 18 January, yet the CPS said this had been cleared.

A representative for the CPS said: This is to empower progressing conversations between the CPS and Anne Sacoolas’ lawful delegates to proceed.

Last month, Mrs Sacoolas’ attorneys denied she would go to a court appearance by means of video interface and said no such understanding had been made.

Mr Seiger said: We have full confidence in the Crown Prosecution Service and will stand by to hear from them with additional turns of events, ideally soon.

Harry’s family were clearly anticipating the meeting on Tuesday so they trust an understanding will be arrived at as soon as possible.

It is imperatively significant for their psychological wellness that equity and conclusion is accomplished soon.
