On Friday, 29 April 2022, the President of the Slovak Republic, Zuzana Čaputová, met representatives of the NGO Center for Civil and Human Rights (Poradňa) together with a group of forcibly sterilized Romani women in Košice, expressing support for their long-term efforts to achieve justice. Slovakia has not yet fully come to terms with the practice of forced sterilization. Last November, the Slovak government apologized for this illegal practice, but the responsible state institutions are still looking for a way to compensate affected women. The President supports the Government’s efforts.
