Women forced to undergo sterilisation in the Czech Republic should receive financial compensation from the state in the next few years, according to new legislation drafted for the minister for human rights, Jiří Dienstbier. Under the bill the women, many of whom are from the Roma ethnic minority, would receive CZK 300,000. A government committee proposed financial compensation in 2006. Three years later the then cabinet apologised for the practice but to date no compensation has been paid out.
