CHAGOS ISLANDERS BETRAYED
Frankie Bontemps told News Line: ‘We’re here following the decision of the British government that we are not allowed to go back to our homeland. We are back to square one. For 50 years we have been fighting for the right to return. The government decided without consulting us. Enough is enough.
‘We are fed up. There are so many problems facing the Chagossians in the UK. We have people in prison because of the immigration laws – families are divided. There are a lot of housing and citizenship issues. The Chagos Islands are an exceptional case and we should have exceptional treatment.
‘This can’t go on. We want a pension for the natives. If they won’t let us return at least they should treat us properly here.’
The UN General Assembly has backed a resolution to refer the legal status of the Chagos Islands, including Diego Garcia, to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) at The Hague: here.
