Wikileaks Victory, Chagossian Defeat in MPA Suit. But....

The UK Supreme Court ruled that a damning Wikileaks-released State Department cable should have been admitted as evidence in the Chagossians' challenge to the British government's creation of a Chagos Marine Protected Area (MPA)--but that the cable would not have affected the outcome of the case. This was another disappointing outcome but the Chagossians have two even bigger cases coming up in May: 1) A new challenge to their exile and 2) Chagossians exiled in Seychelles claiming compensation that they have long been denied (some Chagossians in Mauritius received small amounts of compensation totaling around $6,000 in today's dollars).
