Amal Clooney has appeared at the Supreme Court in London to help argue the case for former residents of the Chagos Islands, who were forced to move from their homes in the 1960s to make way for a U.S. airbase.
A legal team including Amal Clooney, which is headed by Edward Fitzgerald QC, claimed the former residents of the tiny Indian Ocean islands suffered ‘a significant injustice’ when moved to make way for the airbase.

In the latest step of their long-running campaign to return to the Chagos archipelago, a British colony, the islanders appealed to the Supreme Court on Monday.
Britain evicted about 2,000 people from the islands in the 1960s and 1970s so that the US military could build an air base on Diego Garcia, the largest of the islands.

Almost a decade ago, Britain’s High Court and Court of Appeal ruled that they and their descendants could return to some of the 65 islands, though not to Diego Garcia. Those decisions were challenged by the government and overturned in 2008 by the Law Lords, then Britain’s highest court.
The Law Lords was replaced by the Supreme Court in 2009. The islanders’ lawyers argue that the earlier judgment should be overturned because the government of the time withheld information about a 2002 feasibility study into resettlement.
Edward Fitzgerald, a lawyer for the islanders, said that “there has been a significant injustice in the earlier proceedings, whether or not there was bad faith.”

Five Supreme Court judges heard the case Monday but are likely to reserve their judgment until later.

  1. Hmm, well, I must say I’m not really a fan of this one. I don’t like the polka dots and the suit looks a bit dated.
    Very interesting case and I hope the judgment will be favourable for the islanders.

  3. She looks absolutely stunning! I like this look on her very much, and it’s vintage. The peplum-like bottom to the jacket adds some curve to her silhouette, too.

  4. Delicate, girly girly, pretty. Polka Dots are always fun & a nice twist to her style. It looks like a peplum fit & style and a bit of a layered look. Nice! 🙂

  5. I’d like to know who the cute guy is in the background of a few of the photos: blue pants, blue jacket, blue shirt, & brown shoes!!
    He is VERY cute!! Mr. Good Lookin’ (in my opinion) ….who are you, please? 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

  6. Nice ensemble and yes, the tailoring of the jacket does give her some shape. Beautiful! My only critique would be that she should wear some sort of stockings to court. I know the bare legged look is fashionable just now, BUT she works in a conservative field and having something on her legs is more professional.

      • Yes, you don’t find many barristers bare legged at the supreme court. You also don’t find many wearing polka dots. It’s a fairly unprofessional look for the court room. If she was actually addressing the court I doubt they would accept it.

  7. Nice polka dot suit. Let’s not get carried away. Many female professionals dress like that.
    Her casual attire with that checked sleeveless coat looks ridiculous.
    I note she was off the air for the standard couple of weeks and is being papped again. Im sure we’ll have a further break soon.

  8. Can I pls ask you to look at the pic of Amal in the dailymail UK on 24.06. 2015. Amal was on a visit to the UK Parliament. What handbag was she carrying?
