Foster Parent Court Case Could Be a First for Iceland

Jelena Ćirić - Iceland Review

Freyja Haraldsdóttir, former substitute MP for Bright Future, has filed a case against Iceland's Government Agency for Child Protection (Barnaverndarstofa or BVS) in response to their denial of her application to become a foster parent, reports. Freyja, who is physically disabled, claims her application was not handled in the same way as those of non-disabled applicants, and the case is brought forth on those grounds.
