23,000 in UK are given immunity

Foreign diplomats and their families are immune from prosecution in their host country under the 1961 Vienna Convention.

It means that 23,000 people in the UK who hold this status cannot automatically be hauled before the courts if they commit a crime.

However, when an envoy or a relative is accused of a serious offence the Foreign Office will ask their home country to waive immunity.

Usually, immunity only covers diplomats and families based in London. However, a special deal is in place which gives it to diplomats and relatives based at RAF Croughton. American officials are said to have turned down the waiver request in Harry Dunn’s case because the suspect’s husband is a spy and they want to protect his identity.

‘Consider not just the politics side of it, but the fact there is a completely broken family.’

She said for weeks after the crash on August 27 no one from the Ministry of Defence or RAF Croughton had been in contact. ‘We’ve just been left.’

Harry, a petrol station worker, was an avid motorcyclist with more than 50,000 miles under his belt. His family said he was a ‘highly experienced, safe and capable rider’ who was ‘riding perfectly safely...travelling on his own side of the road’ when he was in collision with the woman’s Volvo.

The Northamptonshire force said during the meeting ‘diplomatic immunity had been raised as an issue’. Officers then sought to obtain a waiver from the US embassy – which is required to allow for the arrest and formal interview of a suspect with diplomatic immunity.

But the force said it was later informed that the waiver had been refused and the woman had left the country despite the fact that officers had been preparing to send a file to the Crown Prosecution Service over charges of causing death by dangerous driving.

The family were informed the day after Harry’s funeral. Government sources said the driver and her family were ‘put on a plane’ within hours of learning she may face charges. Harry’s family believe she was spirited out of the UK quickly as her husband is a spy and because US authorities wanted to ensure his identity was not compromised.

The US state department refused to answer questions on the case but said ‘immunity is rarely waived’. UK sources confirmed the woman had ‘full diplomatic immunity’.

Mrs Charles said, if necessary, the family would travel to the US to seek answers. They are also considering a civil claim for compensation against the state department or from the insurers of the woman’s vehicle.

Mr Dunn, who is separated from Harry’s mother, said: ‘I echo everything Charlotte says. The pain of our family’s loss is unbearable.’

Defence expert Stephen Lanyard, a retired US colonel, said: ‘Once a claim of diplomatic immunity is made and a person has left the country there is very little that can be done to bring them back.’
