The Senate of the Czech Republic should adopt the draft law on compensation for victims of forced sterilisation

In a letter to the Senate of the Czech Republic, published today, the Commissioner expresses her support for the adoption of the Proposal for a law for a one-off financial compensation for victims of unlawful sterilisation.  In her letter, she follows up on her dialogue with the Czech Chamber of Deputies, which first adopted the bill on reparations for victims of forced or coercive sterilisation.

The Commissioner notes that, if the Senate adopts the draft law, it provides an opportunity “to allow the victims to experience a measure of justice and to move forward.”
