It means exactly what it says. the Island of Diego Garcia , a British territory in the Indian ocean is an example, whose inhabitants were removed by force in the late 1960s to make way for an American naval base. Most ended up in the slums of Mauritius, and officially did not exist. The media reported that the island was uninhabited. There is a detailed account of it in John Pilger's book, "Freedom next time".
