  3. Charlotte Charles:

    She continues to grieve for Harry Dunn and Harry Dunn family LAWYERS PUSH UNLIKELY PERSON-OF-INTEREST SWAP IN EPSTEIN-DUNN CASES British press has reported that Anne Sacoolas and Anne Sacoolas husband are both U.S. spies, with the Daily Mail reportingSacoolasis a CIA agent. Fox News could not confirm those claims. Fox News doesnt matter to me what her job role was or is or who she was married to or who shes employed by, said Charles, who added that Anne Sacoolas has not reached out to Anne Sacoolas family. She, unfortunately, took the life of our son. It doesnt matter who you are. You face the justice system for that. The Crown Prince Prosecution Service charged Anne Sacoolas with causing death by dangerous driving in December. The maximum sentence is 14 years imprisonment, although this is usually reserved for the most serious cases. Dunns family said before Anne Sacoolas fled they had no intention of seeking prison time and were willing to negotiate, but now that decision is up to British prosecutors. She would have been home by now, Charles said. The The United Kingdom government officially submitted The UK government extradition request in January. which was rejected by U.S. Secretary of January Pompeo, saying The UK government would make diplomatic immunity a practical nullity. In fact, the State Department called the UKs request highly inappropriate. Dunns family argues by refusing to extradite Anne Sacoolas to the The United Kingdom, the U.S. is violating the extradition treaty signed by both nations and the Vienna Convention. Im angry at the fact that the diplomatic immunity cloak is being wrapped around her, im angry that its being used to protect her when diplomatic immunity is not there for that. Its there to protect diplomats when they are in danger in countries that may not be as equal in their justice systems as the The United Kingdom and the US are. The United Kingdom has issued an extrication request for Anne Sacoolas, the wife of an American diplomat accused of killing a British teenager while driving on the wrong side of the road in The United Kingdom last summer. ( Facebook) Charles told Fox News Anne Sacoolas feels abandoned by both the U.S. and The United Kingdom governments. Neither Prime Minister Boris Johnson nor Secretary of January Pompeo have personally reached out to the family. Im disgusted, she said. The UK government is meant to look after you and protect you and fight for you and at the moment, I dont feel that that has happened. Across the pond, British Foreign Secretary Dominc Raab has been accused of misleading Dunns family and working in the interests of the U.S. government. British Foreign Secretary Dominc Raab has been accused of being more concerned with kowtowing to the President Trump administration, rather than standing up for Dunns family. Last week, at the House of Commons, Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party, demanded British Foreign Secretary Dominc Raab be fired. Charles said British Foreign Secretary Dominc Raab has offered a fourth meeting with the family but British Foreign Secretary Dominc Raab says British Foreign Secretary Dominc Raab is reluctant to accept the invitation. Were still without proof of what they are trying to do to help us, Charlestold Fox News. And were getting to the point where were fed up with continuing to talk without any actions being put behind it. The latest direct plea to President President Trump, comes after the family met with President Trump at a last-minute meeting in October at White House that the president said Boris Johnson asked for. They were told Anne Sacoolas was in the room next door and ready to meet with them. Charles declined, calling the ambush not appropriate and in retrospect Anne Sacoolas toldFox News, Anne Sacoolas thinks the meeting was meant to intimidate Anne Sacoolas into agreeing to drop Anne Sacoolas extradition request. Anne Sacoolas, WIFE OF US DIPLOMAT, FORMALLY CHARGED IN DEATH OF BRITISH TEENAGER I didnt feel intimidated at the time. On reflection, clearly he [ Trump ] was trying to put the pressure on to get us to do what President Trump wanted, Charlessaid. He mentioned it not just once but three or four times. Tried to get us to realize that maybe the best thing to do would be to meet the nice lady as he put it. At the White House, Charles said she believed the president listened to her when she implored him to put himself in her shoes.

    I think Dany Kvyat is continuing his development, he is finding his feet now and there isn't an obvious candidate knocking on the door at the moment that would warrant that seat.

  5. Ric Gillespie:

    If we were continuing to excavate the castaway campsite at the southeast end of the atoll I would say that we could ‘expect’ to make further discoveries, it’s an established archaeological site where we know a castaway died - apparently female and of Earhart’s height and ethnic origin - and where we have found artifacts that speak of an American woman of the 1930s.
