The Minority Rights Group (MRG) has told the UN that the UK is continuing to violate the human rights of the Chagossians, in its submission to a review of human rights issues. ‘The UK made unjustified interferences with the Chagossians’ right to private life and home, and is in continuous violation of these rights by failing to facilitate their return to the islands,’ the organisation said.

The MRG reminded the UK of its commitments under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
