UK urged to apologise to Cyprus torture victims

UK agreed to pay compensation to those abused during 1950s campaign but still refuses to accept liability.

by

    Greece's defence minister has called on the British government to apologise to the victims of the "Cyprus Emergency", an armed campaign in the 1950s to end colonial rule of the island that ended with it gaining independence in 1960.

    While the UK has already agreed to pay out more than $1m in compensation, it still refuses to accept liability.
