LAWYER Vanda Durbáková received the Woman of Courage award from the US Ambassador to Slovakia, Theodore Sedgwick, on the occasion of International Roma Day, on April 8.

Durbáková was representing the Košice-based non-governmental Advisory Centre for Civil and Human Rights (PĽOP) which has dealt with the protection of human rights since 2002 and was involved in the case involving the forcible sterilisation of Roma women. The activities of Durbáková and PĽOP contributed to three decisions made by the European Court for Human Rights, which confirmed that the rights of Roma women had been violated.

“I do this work because I care about how my country treats minorities and want to effect a change in this behaviour,” said Durbáková.
