Francis Noel-Baker

Here's a set of articles and obituaries on Francis Noel-Baker, a former Labour MP that passed away almost four months ago.

Noel-Baker had supported the democratic government overthrown by the coup of 1967, but he praised the "honest Colonels" for tackling corruption and inefficiency. He scorned torture allegations by Amnesty International as "grossly exaggerated", and hailed the regime as "the best for years".
