Harry Dunn’s alleged killer Anne Sacoolas will not appear in UK court next week as scheduled |  UK News

Harry Dunn’s alleged killer Anne Sacoolas will no longer face a UK court hearing next week, as scheduled.

The US citizen was scheduled to appear by video link in Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.

Sacoolas, 44, is charged with causing Mr Dunn’s death by reckless driving after a fatal traffic accident outside the US military base RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire on August 27, 2019.

The suspect had diplomatic immunity asserted on her behalf by the US government following the collision and was able to leave the UK 19 days after the collision.

A decision was taken to charge Sacoolas in December 2019.

A statement from the Crown attorney said: “As a result of the engagement between the parties, the January 18 hearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court has been canceled.

“It is about allowing the continuation of the discussions underway between the CPS and the legal representatives of Anne Sacoolas.

“Ms. Sacoolas has the right to a fair trial. It is extremely important that there is no reporting, comment or sharing of information online that could in any way prejudice any proceedings.”

Radd Seiger, spokesperson for Harry Dunn’s family, said: “We have full confidence in the Crown Prosecution Service and will look forward to hearing from them with further developments, hopefully in the near future.

“Harry’s family were obviously looking forward to Tuesday’s hearing so they are hopeful that a deal will be reached as soon as possible.

“It is vitally important to their mental health that justice and closure be delivered soon.”
