美外交官妻子英國撞人卻豁免?特朗普:意外常有
來源:21英語網    日期: 2019-10-10

因為一場特殊的車禍“逃逸”事件,英國首相鮑里斯•約翰遜和美國總統特朗普,又成了新聞頭條的焦點人物!

當地時間周三晚,英國首相約翰遜致電美國總統特朗普,私下表示希望對方“重新考慮美國女子在英國駕車撞死英國男孩事件中,美國對于外交豁免權的立場。”

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson telephoned US President Donald Trump on Wednesday to personally ask him to 'reconsider the US position' to grant immunity to an American woman suspected of being involved in the death of a British teenager.   

事情還要從今年的8月29日說起,當時19歲的Harry Dunn在北安普頓地區正常駕駛摩托車騎行,卻因被迎面開來的汽車撞上,當場死亡。鮑里斯口中的“嫌疑人”是現年42歲的美國女性Anne Sacoolas,她當時承諾自己不會離開英國,卻在幾天后返回了美國。

Motorcyclist Harry Dunn, 19, died in the fatal August 27 accident in Northamptonshire, central England, after crashing head on with a car driving on the wrong side of the road, police said. Anne Sacoolas, 42, who Johnson named as the suspect in the investigation on Monday, left the UK despite assuring the police she would remain the country in the near future, police said.



而Anne Sacoolas則是一名美國駐英外交官的妻子,在事件發生后她利用外交豁免權回到美國。

根據當地警方的聲明,當時“轎車從對面撞上黑色川崎摩托”,而且警方確認“轎車逆行”。 英國警方要求取消Anne Sacoolas的外交豁免權,然而這一請求卻被駁回,隨之引發英國立法人員和受害者家屬的強烈不滿。

According to a Northamptonshire Police statement after the crash, a car "collided head on with a black Kawasaki motorcycle traveling in the opposite direction." On Sunday, they confirmed "the car was being driven on the wrong side of the road." The case sparked an outcry over the weekend among British lawmakers and the victim's family after a police request for Sacoolas's diplomatic immunity to be waived was rejected.

約翰遜在周一曾表示:“我認為,出于這樣的目的使用外交豁免權,是不正確的。我希望Anne Sacoolas回到英國,按照英國的要求進行法律流程。”

"I do not think that it can be right to use the process of diplomatic immunity for this type of purpose," Johnson said on Monday. "I hope that Anne Sacoolas will come back and engage properly with the processes of law as they're carried out in this country."



不過在周三通過電話后,特朗普拒絕了約翰遜有關取消Anne Sacoolas外交豁免權的要求。

Trump on Wednesday publicly rebuffed a plea from Prime Minister Boris Johnson to waive diplomatic immunity for Sacoolas.

據英國《每日郵報》報道,特朗普表示“這是一出悲劇”,并且形容嫌疑人Anne Sacoolas(特朗普并未提及姓名)“開到了錯誤的方向”,并且暗示自己在英國時也開錯過。

Trump acknowledged that 'a tragedy occurred' and described suspect Anne Sacoolas - who he did not name - as 'driving on the wrong side of the road,' then suggested he had done the same too in the UK.

“英國道路(和美國)是相反的,所以可能發生(事故)。我不會說自己會出意外,但是確實有可能。當你習慣了美國的駕駛習慣,然后突然換到了英國,開車時就有可能出意外。你必須得小心。”

'Those are the opposite roads. That can happen,' Trump said. 'I won't say it ever happened to me, but it did. When you get used to driving on our system and you're all of a sudden on the other system, where you're driving, it happens. You have to be careful.'



顯然,約翰遜此番努力并沒有成功。受害者的父母則非常失望。

受害者的母親Charlotte Charles表示,對于英美政府感到厭惡、失望。父親則說:“讓人失望的是,似乎奪去一個年輕人的生命,然后轉身離開就可以了,僅僅是因為你擁有外交豁免權。”

Harry's mother Charlotte Charles said: 'I'm disgusted and feel let down by both governments. ' Mr Dunn added: 'The really disappointing thing is that it seems that it's OK to kill a young lad and then walk away just because you have diplomatic immunity.'
 


那么,外交豁免權有可能取消嗎?

美國國務院對CNN表示,取消外交豁免權是非常罕見的。“我們的外交人員及家屬,出現如今這樣有關取消外交豁免權的問題,會在高級別引發強烈關注,考慮到決定實施后的全球影響,我們會認真考量。”

The US State Department told CNN Saturday that diplomatic immunity is "rarely waived." "Any questions regarding a waiver of immunity with regard to our diplomats and their family members overseas in a case like this receive intense attention at senior levels and are considered carefully given the global impact such decisions carry," it added.
