Lawyers for the family of a British filmmaker killed in Gaza are pressuring the British government to extradite an IDF officer to stand trial for murder, after a London court ruled the killing of James Miller a homicide. The ten-member jury at the St. Pancras Coroner's Court in London on April 6 ruled the death of James Miller was an "unlawful killing" and an "intentional act of murder", the solicitor for the Miller family, Louise Christian told The Jerusalem Post. Miller's death was a "breach of the Geneva Conventions" Christian said, and "we are inviting the Attorney General to institute proceedings against Lt. Haib in this country and to demand his extradition."
