Cypriots to sue Britain over torture claims
An official says Cypriots who fought against British colonial rule in the 1950s plan to sue the U.K. government for torture they allegedly suffered at the hands of British authorities while in custody.

 

Thassos Sophocleous, the president of an organization of former Cypriot fighters, says the British law firm K.J. Conroy & Co. is gathering information from them to build a case following this month's landmark ruling from Britain's High Court which found that three Kenyans tortured during a rebellion against British colonial rule can seek compensation.
