An unusual request

A British Army officer currently on sick leave has made an unusual request. According to this report:
An Iraq War major alleged to have been connected with the 2003 drowning death of an Iraqi teenager has said he will hand himself into a war crimes court because British justice is incapable of giving him a “fair trial.” 
The unnamed serving officer maintains his innocence and in a letter to Defence Secretary Michael Fallon has condemned the “13-year witch hunt” he claims he and his men have been subjected to.
