  • I left (British Indian Ocean Territory) in 1967. My husband was ill and we had taken him to Mauritius for treatment. When we were ready to return, (Mauritian) officials said they had instructions not to let us go back. They told us Diego (Garcia) had been sold. They tried to starve us. There was no milk, no oil, no salt.
