Hit-and-run fugitive Anne Sacoolas is ‘promoted’ to new job at CIA’s Langley HQ after fleeing UK to escape justice over Harry Dunn’s death – as victim’s family brand claims ‘inhumane’
- Harry Dunn, 19, was killed in head-on collision with a car on August 27 last year
- Anne Sacoolas is believed to have been driving on the wrong side of the road
- The 42-year-old CIA operative is thought to have been given a recent promotion
The family of biker Harry Dunn has hit out after claims the woman who is alleged to have killed him has been promoted by the CIA.
Mr Dunn was killed in a head-on collision with a car on August 27 last year near RAF Croughton, in Northamptonshire.
Anne Sacoolas, 42, is believed to have been driving on the wrong side of the road and was charged with causing death by dangerous driving.
She was granted diplomatic immunity following the incident and was able to return to her home country, sparking an international controversy.
Now, it has been claimed the 42-year-old, who is a fluent Russian speaker, is now the boss of a 100-strong overseas team based at the CIA HQ in Langley, Virginia, as reported by the Sunday Express.

It is thought that she is so valued President Donald Trump even held a ceremony to praise her for her intelligence gathering prowess.
Mr Dunn’s mother, Charlotte Charles, said the allegations were ‘inhumane and disgusting’.

Ms Charles said: ‘It’s clear that, as parents, we are just pawns in a diplomatic and espionage game and no one in authority in Washington or London really cares about how we feel.’
It was previously reported that Mrs Sacoolas was the wife of an intelligence officer, but she is in fact understood to be a senior CIA operations officer who actually outranks her husband, Jonathan.
It comes just days after Mr Dunn’s mother, Charlotte Charles, has written to the Prime Minister asking for a meeting after the US refused to extradite Mrs Sacoolas.
In a letter to Mr Johnson, Mrs Charles, 45, from Charlton, Northamptonshire, said: ‘We think that what happened to Harry has highlighted a number of very serious problems which need to be fixed urgently.

‘This is not just an issue of diplomatic immunity for the Foreign Office to address, as important as that is.
‘I don’t know why you haven’t wanted to see us. Please don’t be frightened.
‘Please meet with us so we can talk about and address the issues. We mean no harm and just want to ensure that Harry did not die in vain.’
Downing Street has said Mr Johnson is ‘committed to securing justice for Harry’s family’.
