19 June 2013 Last updated at 19:24 BST

A man exiled from Chile under General Pinochet's regime is fighting for compensation 40 years later.

Leopoldo Garcia, 80, moved to south London after he and his family were tortured in their home country.

Now he is fighting for victims to be compensated for the human rights abuses they suffered.

Mr Garcia told BBC London's Sonja Jessup his scars still remind him of Pinochet.
