Chagos families win legal battle
Families expelled from the Chagos Islands by the British have won their legal battle for the right to return home at the Court of Appeal.
The government took the case to the Court of Appeal after two earlier rulings declared the actions unlawful.
It has a month to decide whether to appeal to the House of Lords.
Many former residents of the Chagos Islands now live in Mauritius or in the UK.
“To accept the islanders’ right to return but do nothing about it… would be meaningless and immoral”
Robert Bain, UK Chagos Support Association chairman
They were evicted from their homes on the Chagos archipelago between Africa and Indonesia, in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
