Britain on Friday expressed its “frustration” at the “absence of justice” after the United States refused to extradite the wife of an American diplomat involved in a traffic accident in Britain, which resulted in the death of a British teenager.

The British Foreign Secretary, Dominic Rapp, confirmed that he had contacted the US ambassador earlier to express “disappointment” in London over the decision to refuse to surrender Mrs. “Sakoulas”, the wife of the American diplomat.

He said in this regard: “We consider this an absence of justice, and we consider that Sakolas must return to the United Kingdom (…) We are now studying all our options.”

And stresses the family of the British teenager who was killed in the accident, that “Sakulas” was driving her car in the wrong direction of the road during the accident near an air base used by the US military in central England.

The “Sakolas” (42 years) enjoy diplomatic immunity when she left Britain shortly after the accident. Her lawyer said that she would not return of her own free will to Britain because she could be imprisoned for a “terrible, but unintended, accident.”

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that Sakulas had erred in using diplomatic immunity to leave Britain, and he urged US President Donald Trump to reconsider the US position refusing to hand over “Sakulas” to the British judiciary.
