Greenland Says Denmark Is Delaying the Investigation of the IUD Case

In a Facebook post, the leader of the Greenlandic government, Naalakkersuisut, criticizes Denmark for the investigation of the IUD scandal in Greenland. That is reported by the Greenlandic newspaper Sermitsiaq.

"The patience has now run out," writes Múte B. Egede (IA) in the post. He also says that Denmark's delays in the investigation of the so-called IUD case, where thousands of Greenlandic women were inserted with an IUD during a years-long campaign - some without consent and to great detriment.

At the end of March, the Danish Ministry of the Interior and Health informed Sermitsiaq that they hope to have people in place to take care of the investigation.

The investigation will be finished two years after the contract was signed, meaning that it will be finished in Spring 2025 at the earliest. It was originally agreed that the investigation was to be finished in October 2024.
