NICOSIA, Jan. 13 (Xinhua) -- A British court in London has allowed a group of Cypriot anticolonial fighters to pursue a court case against the British government demanding compensation for torture about 60 years ago, one of the group said on Saturday.
The court case was filed by 34 elderly Greek Cypriots, who as young men were tortured by members of the British colonial military and administration when fighting a guerilla war for the liberation of the eastern Mediterranean island from 1955-1959.
