London: The parents of a British teenager whom police say was killed in a wrong-way collision involving the wife of a US diplomat said in a televised interview that they are willing to travel to America to get justice for their son, Harry Dunn.

After the August crash, Anne Sacoolas, 42, claimed diplomatic immunity under international law, allowing her to avoid prosecution and fly home to the US - despite telling British police she had no plans to do so.

While Sacoolas was named in British media reports and by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson as the suspect driving the vehicle that allegedly involved in the collision with Dunn's motorcyle, the US State Department has declined to confirm her or her husband's identity.

In the weeks since the 19-year-old's death, his parents - Tim Dunn and Charlotte Charles - have said they will not stop trying to obtain justice for their son and have appealed to the British Prime Minister and President Donald Trump to assist them in their quest for justice.

Harry's parents say they are ready to ask Trump to consider waiving diplomatic immunity, which would mean sending Sacoolas back to Britain to face justice. A statement from US Embassy noted that "immunity is rarely waived."

"With the amount of diplomats we have in the UK [United Kingdom], we can't have someone go out and do something like that again and leave another family to suffer," Charlotte said in an interview with BBC Breakfast on Tuesday.

The parents also said during the interview that they had heard "absolutely nothing" from the Sacoolas family since the fatal collision near the Royal Air Force Croughton station, which is operated by the US Air Force.

"As a mother myself, it's really distressing not to have any word from her [Sacoolas]. It doesn't sit well with me," Charlotte said.

"The whole family desperately want to grieve but we can't, so every day is a battle," she added, while revealing that Harry had a twin brother, who has now "lost his twin-ship and his partner in crime."

The teenager's death has sparked widespread outrage on British soil and, in recent days, has garnered international interest, with Dunn's parents receiving condolences and supportive messages from many around the world.

"The messages of support we've had from the US have been immense. They're all appalled and devastated for us and disgusted that this woman has been allowed to leave the UK," Charlotte said.

"We are determined to see it through, we won't stop. We will go to Washington if we have to," she added.
"Maybe President Trump will look at this and hopefully look in our favour," Tim, the father, added.

Tim Dunn and Charlotte Charles have spoken out about the death of their son Harry Dunn.

On Monday, Johnson said that he hoped Sacoolas would return to Britain and "engage properly with the processes of law" while adding that he was willing to raise Dunn's case "personally with the White House," if necessary.

In a tweet on Tuesday, US ambassador to Britain, Woody Johnson, said that British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab and his US counterpart, Mike Pompeo, had "discussed the tragic death of a British citizen in a traffic accident on August 27 near Croughton" on Monday. "We once again express our condolences to the friends and family of Harry Dunn."

Family members of diplomats living in other countries are covered by immunity, Under the 1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations. In most circumstances, this allows them to avoid arrest for virtually any crime. A country can also waive their diplomats immunity if it so chooses.

On Tuesday Dunn's parents described him as a "big-hearted" person and "passionate" biker who "lived to ride."

That it was an American who caused a wrong-way collision surprised nobody.

A diplomat being a piece of shit? No way.
Diplomats cause road accidents all the time all over the world and diplomatic immunity is one of the worst things that has ever been passed into law. I can almost guarantee nothing will come of this and this family will have to suffer their son's murder with no justice.

The Russians still haven't paid the parking fines they've racked up in Canberra for years, now. The oldest unpaid fine by embassies goes back to '03.

Wasn't Harry Dunn the name of Jeff Daniels' character in Dumb And Dumber?

On subject though, using diplomatic immunity to avoid parking fines is one thing, but using it to avoid the consequences of killing someone? Piss off, the bitch needs punishment.

nobles and royalty used to have diplomatic immunity, they could do as they pleased to the commoners but then we got rid of feudalism and the nobility system yet now we've created a new kind of noble, immune to the law
It's literally a "get out of jail free" card. Every nation's diplomats are guilty of abusing it from time to time, some more than others. For example, "rogue states" like North Korea (and formerly Libya) regularly use unsearchable diplomatic courier bags to smuggle stacks of counterfeit currency, weapons, drugs, contraband, etc from their embassies to their various terrorist/saboteur fronts in the West.

Should throw her over there. She tells the police she's sticking around then fucks off. I'm sure that's going to do wonders for her husband and his job over there when he's associated with his wife who's stupidity ended up killing a 19 year old and then running off under DI. She's not even the diplomat, she's his wife, so why is she covered? Apparently the diplomat is a glownigger, part of the IC. Throw his wife to the dogs.

Wouldn't be surprised if this picks up steam that the diplomat gets yanked from Britain and replaced/reassigned.
