This was announced last month by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS). Ms Sacoolas would appear via video link to Westminster judges on Tuesday to respond to allegations of causing the death of Mr. Dunna with a dangerous ride.
However, the CPS announced on Friday that the January 18 hearing was adjourned after “engagement” with its attorneys.
“This should allow ongoing discussions between the CPS and Anne Sacoolas’ legal representatives,” a CPS spokesman said.
Ms Sacoolas hinted last month that they had not yet agreed on her appearance at the hearing. “Although we have always been willing to discuss a virtual hearing, there is currently no agreement,” a spokesman for Arnold & Porter said.
Sacoolas is charged with the murder of 19-year-old Dunn, who died after his motorcycle collided with an American car that was allegedly driving on the wrong side of the road near RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire in August 2019.
The base is used by the U.S. military, and Sacoolas was granted diplomatic immunity after the incident. She and her husband left Britain soon after.
Two years ago, the state prosecutor’s office accused Sacoolas of causing death by dangerous driving. U.S. officials rejected a request for extradition filed by the Home Office last January, and their refusal to extradite it has been repeatedly described as “final.”
Radd Seiger, a spokesman for the Harry Dunn family, said: “We fully believe in the Crown Prosecution and will look forward to their further development, hopefully in the near future.
“Harry’s family was obviously looking forward to the hearing on Tuesday, so they hope an agreement will be reached sooner rather than later.
“It is crucial for their mental health that justice and imprisonment be achieved soon.”
The CPS added: “Mrs Sacoolas has the right to a fair trial. It is extremely important that there should be no reporting, commenting or sharing of information online that could in any way harm any process.
