LONDON (Reuters) – Britain supports the family of Harry Dunn as it seeks damages against U.S. diplomat’s wife Anne Sacoolas in the United States, foreign minister Dominic Raab said on Wednesday.

Sacoolas was involved in a car crash that killed British teenager Dunn in 2019. She left Britain shortly after the accident claiming diplomatic immunity from criminal prosecution. The U.S. refused to extradite her last year.

“We support the family seeking justice for the loss of Harry,” Raab told the BBC.
