Center for Civil and Human Rights welcomes today’s decision of the European Court of Human Rights in case I. G. and Others vs. Slovakia.

The case was lodged with the European Court already in 2004 by three applicants, who were forcibly sterilized in Krompachy Hospital under different circumstances in 1999-2002. The decision is already the third one, in a course of a year, when the European Court ruled against Slovakia for forced sterilizations of Romani women.

Poradna calls on the Slovak Government to finally stop pretending that these serious violations of human rights were made up by the activists, to admit its responsibility and to compensate all victims.
