PRAGUE (Newsdesk.org) -- Gypsy women who say they were sterilized against their will by Czech doctors were heartened last December when a government investigator released a study that largely vindicated their claims.
Six months later, however, advocates for Gypsies -- known more formally as Roma -- say the practice is continuing, and are dismayed by what they consider only token steps by Czech officials to stop it.
"There's been basically dead silence at the level of elites," said Claude Cahn, program director of the European Roma Rights Center, an advocacy group based in Budapest.
Officials at the Health Ministry acknowledge the problem, but have not taken responsibility.
