Oct. 12 (Overseas Network) -- Recently, the wife of a U.S. diplomat in the United Kingdom drove her car backwards and killed 19-year-old Harry Dunn, then fled back to the United States with diplomatic immunity, causing a stir. The parents of the murdered teenagers decided to go to the United States to seek justice for their sons after the negotiations between the United States and Britain had not made substantial progress.
According to CNN and Sun, a spokesman for Harry Dunn said on Twitter on November 11 that he was going to Washington and New York in the United States to bring the Justice for Harry back campaign to the United States. Harrys parents will go to the United States to hold a press conference 14 days ago, but the venue of the conference has not yet been determined, the spokesman said to the American media. It is reported that Harrys parents will meet with various news media, and ultimately hope that the U.S. government can change its view that bringing Sakuras back to Britain to face the judicial system is the right choice.

The accident happened on August 27 near an air base in Northamptonshire, England. The wife of the American diplomat involved, Anne Sakuras, was driving backwards and hit Harry, a British teenager on a motorcycle. Harry was then rushed to hospital, but died of serious injuries.
Police said Sakuras initially showed a cooperative attitude towards the case, but she still used diplomatic immunity to flee back to the United States after assuring herself that she would stay in Britain.
In response to the tragedy, British police said they had applied to the United States to cancel the suspects diplomatic immunity for investigation, but were told that the application was rejected and the suspect had returned to the United States. British Foreign Minister Rabb said Friday that he regretted the relevant decisions of the United States and hoped that the United States would reconsider them. British Prime Minister said on the 11th that although US President Trump expressed sympathy for the Harry family, the United States was very unwilling to allow its citizens to be tried abroad.
Earlier, the U.S. Ambassador to Britain expressed his condolences to Harrys relatives and friends, and a spokesman for the U.S. Embassy said that in such incidents, any matter involving the cancellation of diplomatic immunity of U.S. diplomats and their families would be highly valued, and the United States would continue to maintain contact with British officials. Trump said his government planned to talk to Sakuras about the matter.
