Ales Butala, a Slovenian human rights lawyer who led the Council of Europe’s delegation to the Czech Republic, said to the New York Times in 2009: “Sex offenders are requesting castration in hope of getting released from a life of incarceration. Is that really free and informed consent?”[1]

The Council of Europe said in response to Czech Republic castration laws: "...Given the context in which the intervention is offered, it is questionable whether consent to the option of surgical castration will always be truly free and informed."
