It is a case that has cast light on a dark chapter of Britain’s imperial past – accusations of rape and torture, castration, beatings and execution, during an uprising in Kenya in the 1950s.
The abuses took place during the so-called Kenyan Emergency of 1952 – 1960, when fighters from the Mau Mau nationalist movement attacked British targets as they rose up against colonial rule.
The Kenyan Human Rights Commission says 90,000 Kenyans were executed, tortured or maimed, and 160,000 were detained in appalling conditions.
