The Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations in Geneva and Ambassador for Human Rights engages bilaterally with States to support the Permanent Representative in delivery of their human rights obligations and represents the Government's position in the Human Rights Council in Geneva.
The Government recognises that the manner of the removal of Chagossians from the British Indian Ocean Territory in the 1960s and 1970s was wrong. Substantial compensation (around £15.5 million in current prices) has been paid to Chagossians since that time. British courts and the European Court of Human Rights have confirmed that compensation has been paid in full and final settlement.
