    [03] EOKA members proceed with legal claim against Britain

    A lawyer, acting on behalf of former EOKA veterans in a claim for personal injuries and human rights abuses suffered whilst in custody of the British colonial administration in the latter half of the 1950s, will be visiting Cyprus again in the first week of September as part of the process of building a case against the UK Government Foreign Office.

    KJ Conroy & Co Solicitors have been representing the EOKA veterans since June 2011 and have been visiting Cyprus on a regular basis to interview potential claimants and take witness statements.

    Kevin Conroy of the Birmingham-based law firm has already taken the first step in the British legal process towards pursuing compensation for his clients. Eight letters of claim on behalf of two women and six men members of the EOKA have been sent to the Foreign Office, who are represented by the Treasury solicitor. The letters set out the details of the allegations and provide the accused with the opportunity to investigate them over the course of six months.
