UN rejects sterilization complaint

THE UNITED Nations will not investigate Slovakia for the alleged illegal sterilization of Roma women in Eastern Slovakia. "In Slovakia there was no illegal sterilization of Roma women," Jozef Čentéš of the Slovak General Prosecution told the media. "The UN said: 'We are not accepting this complaint and we will conduct no investigation against you'," Čentéš added.

The European Roma Rights Centre submitted the complaint to the UN. In 2003, non-governmental organizations warned about the possibility of illegal sterilization based on interviews with over 110 women and published their conclusion in a report entitled Body and Soul.
