Sterilisation row deepens

A Roma political leader who turned over evidence on the illegal sterilisation of Roma women could face charges of spreading alarmist information.

Evidence of the alleged criminal procedures presented to the Interior Ministry by Alexander Patkoló of the Slovak Roma Initiative political party has not been confirmed, and he has been called to the ministry to explain his accusations further.

The police say they are considering a charge, put forward by the newly-formed Real Slovak National Party against Patkoló for spreading the information .

Three of the women Patkoló claimed had been sterilised without their consent were discovered to have had the operation performed legally, ministry investigators said.

One, who Patkoló said had given him a signed affidavit confirming the illegal sterilisation, was unable to read or write, they said.
