Kenyan torture victims cash bid; InBrief.

THREE victims of torture during the Mau Mau uprising have given evidence to the High Court in their bid to win damages.

Last year, the elderly Kenyans won a ruling from Mr Justice McCombe that they had "arguable cases in law", but they are now facing the Government's claim that the actions were brought outside the legal time limit.

Their lawyers say it is an exceptional case in which the judge should exercise his discretion in their favour. The trio want an apology and a Mau Mau welfare fund to ensure they and their fellows can live with dignity in their final days.
