A class action lawsuit has been launched against the British Ministry of Defense on behalf of Kenyan women who claimed to have been raped by UK soldiers between 1972 and last year. To date, 650 Maasai and Samburu women have come forward with rape allegations, and many more victims are expected to surface as well. Attorneys for the victims claim to have evidence such as police and medical reports for at least 100 of the cases, and they are planning to claim damages for each alleged victim of $33,200 to $49,800. The British government has granted legal aid to the women so that they may pursue their claims, and a criminal investigation by the Royal Military Police is underway.
