Lisa Nandy MP, Labour’s Shadow Foreign Secretary, commenting on the decision by Interpol to issue a red notice for Anne Sacoolas, said:
“It is now recognised that the decision to allow Ms Sacoolas to leave the UK – without the knowledge of the investigating police force – is a clear violation of legal protocol. It makes clear that Ms Sacoolas is wanted for crimes in the UK. Labour is working on a cross-party basis to establish a Parliamentary inquiry into how this was allowed to happen and we will continue to raise this with the United States authorities.
“The Foreign Secretary must now urgently come to the House to explain these failings, and set out how he will engage with his counterparts in the United States to resolve this situation and provide much-needed closure for Harry Dunn’s family and loved ones.”
