It is highly unlikely that this will happen


It's an extradition process, so legal. Doubtlessly questions of her diplomatic status will be explored and exposed.

Here's the Treaty


1. An offense shall be an extraditable offense if the conduct on which the offense is based is punishable under the laws in both States by deprivation of liberty for a period of one year or more or by a more severe penalty.


You don't understand. Diplomats and their wives/husbands are exempt from the extradition laws that cover non-diplomats because they are exempt from arrest or conviction by another country, whatever crimes they commit. They shouldn't be, in my opinion, but that is the current situation. The USA rarely extradites its citizens and they usually have to have been convicted of crimes by another country. That's why I said it is highly unlikely the woman will be extradited. Today, I have been proved right by the reported refusal of the US government to hand over the woman. As far as the USA is concerned, the Treaty does not apply to her because it thinks its diplomats cannot be arrested or charged for alleged crimes. The truth is, the situation surrounding diplomatic immunity is a legal mess and needs changing. But it is highly unlikely the governments of countries will agree to the much-needed revisions.

And another car is filmed being driven on the wrong side of the road from the military base. This is the third one reported since the fatal accident which killed Harry Dunn.
