Information on any complaints to a court or
other authority about injuries caused by poor medical treatment
during a forced abortion could not be found among the sources
currently available to the DIRB in Ottawa. However, the following
information may be of interest.
Under article 28 of the Henan Provincial
Rules and Regulations on Family Planning, adopted in April
If a person suffers from serious complications, becomes crippled, or dies due a sterilization operation, compensation must be given in accordance with the relevant rules and regulations governing medical accidents.
If a person dies, loses his working capability, or encounters economic difficulties in life due to his sterilization operation, the case must be handled in accordance with the rules and regulations governing industrial accidents (Henan Ribao 10 may 1990).
This response was prepared after
researching publicly accessible information currently available to
the DIRB within time constraints. This response is not, and does
not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular
claim to refugee status or asylum. Please find attached the list of
sources consulted in researching this information request.
