Mother of biker Harry Dunn accuses Boris of being too 'frightened'

Mother of motorcyclist Harry Dunn, 19, accuses Boris Johnson of being too ‘frightened’ to meet family and explain why US diplomat’s wife Anne Sacoolas is not being extradited to UK to answer charges over fatal crash

  • Charlotte Charles said Boris Johnson shouldn’t be frightened of meeting her 
  • Charles said: ‘This is not just an issue of diplomatic immunity for the FCO’
  • Anne Sacoolas, 42, an American intelligence officer’s wife, admitted to causing an accident in which Harry Dunn, 19, died, in Northamptonshire last August 

The mother of crash victim Harry Dunn believes that Boris Johnson will not meet her family because he is ‘frightened’.

Charlotte Charles has written to the Prime Minister asking for a meeting after the US refused to extradite Anne Sacoolas, 42, an American intelligence officer’s wife, over the death of motorcyclist Harry, 19, last August.

She has admitted causing the accident after driving her SUV on the wrong side of the road outside RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire, but claimed diplomatic immunity.

Mr Dunn died in hospital after he was involved in a crash with a car owned by Mrs Sacoolas, while he was riding his motorbike, where her husband, Jonathan, was stationed.  

In a letter to Mr Johnson, Mrs Charles, 45, from Charlton, Northamptonshire, said: ‘We think that what happened to Harry has highlighted a number of very serious problems which need to be fixed urgently.

‘This is not just an issue of diplomatic immunity for the Foreign Office to address, as important as that is. 

In a letter to Prime Minister Boris Johnson (pictured on Tuesday), Mrs Charles, 45, from Charlton, Northamptonshire, said: ‘I don’t know why you haven’t wanted to see us. Please don’t be frightened’

‘I don’t know why you haven’t wanted to see us. Please don’t be frightened.

‘Please meet with us so we can talk about and address the issues. We mean no harm and just want to ensure that Harry did not die in vain.’  

Downing Street has said Mr Johnson is ‘committed to securing justice for Harry’s family’.
