THE UK foreign secretary, Liz Truss, has raised the case of Harry Dunn with the US Secretary of State during the United Nations General Assembly.
The case of Harry Dunn is one of the most high-profile motorcycle-related news stories of the last two years, with figures like Joe Biden and Boris Johnson engaging on the matter.
Harry was killed while riding past RAF Croughton on his motorcycle when he was struck by a car that was travelling on the wrong side of the road. The alleged driver of the car at the time was the wife of a US diplomat, Anne Sacoolas. Her husband was serving at the base, which remains a United States Air Force communications station. Despite a request from the police at the time to remain in the UK, Sacoolas and her husband fled the country on what is thought to be a US Air Force flight soon after the crash.
This week saw the United Nations Assembly serve as a prime opportunity for Ms Truss to address the issue at one of the highest-profile meetings of global powers. She spoke to Antony Blinken, the US Secretary of State at the event, during a discussion on a range of issues. A Foreign and Commonwealth Development Office (FCDO) spokesperson said:
“They discussed the benefits to both countries of the USA decision to lift travel restrictions on fully-vaccinated travellers from the UK from November… The Foreign Secretary also raised the case of Harry Dunn and the need to make progress on delivering justice for Harry’s family.”
