Discrimination by nationality is not racial bias
Regina (Dost Mohammed) v. Secretary of State for Defence
Court of Appeal
“The British Government’s scheme in 2000 for making ex gratia single payments of £10,000 to each surviving member of five specified categories of persons who had been imprisoned by the Japanese during the Second World War, or their surviving spouses, did not unlawfully discriminate against a Pakistani citizen, captured and imprisoned while serving in the Indian Army, who could not meet the criteria set out in the scheme.”
