The moms and dads of Harry Dunn say they have had a “really sincere” and “favorable” conference with the foreign secretary.
Mr Dunn 19, died after a crash in Northamptonshire in August and United States national Anne Sacoolas is believed of causing his death by hazardous driving.
The United States has denied an extradition demand for Mrs Sacoolas.
After talks with Dominic Raab, Mr Dunn’s household representative stated they were “pleased that the foreign secretary is in there batting for Harry”.
The case will be raised with the US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, when he checks out the UK on Wednesday.
Mr Pompeo refused the extradition demand in an email to the UK federal government on Thursday evening.
Ms Sacoolas, 42, declared diplomatic resistance following the crash and had the ability to go back to the United States.
The crash took place outdoors RAF Croughton, where Mrs Sacoolas’s spouse Jonathan worked as an intelligence officer.
Ms Sacoolas is to be charged with triggering death by unsafe driving however Prime Minister Boris Johnson has formerly stated the chance of her ever returning to the UK is extremely low.
Mr Johnson also informed United States President Donald Trump of “the need” for Mrs Sacoolas to return after the extradition demand was declined.
Mr Dunn’s family held talks with Mr Raab on Monday and later on Mr Dunn’s mother, Charlotte Charles stated: “Dialogue was really open, everything was really truthful, every question we had was addressed.
” He was able to look us in the eye, we might see his anger with the choice of the States turning down the extradition request.”
Mr Raab said in declaration: “We feel the US choice on extradition total up to a denial of justice and have been clear with them that Anne Sacoolas should go back to the UK.
” The family and I want to accomplish the very same thing. We desire justice for Harry and we desire to ensure such a horrible disaster does not happen once again.”
