COPENHAGEN, Oct 2 (Reuters) – A group of women in Greenland are seeking compensation from Denmark over an involuntary birth control campaign launched in the 1960s, their lawyer said on Monday.

With an official investigation by the governments of Greenland and its former colonial ruler Denmark not due to report until May 2025, the group are seeking compensation now, given some of the women are in their 70s and 80s.

“What do we need it for when we clearly know that there have been violations of the law and human rights,” Naja Lyberth, one of the women seeking compensation, told Reuters.
