Investigation into alleged remains of Jozef Tiso

The bones dug out of the alleged grave of Jozef Tiso, the President of the wartime Slovak State, will be subject to a DNA test. Tiso’s symbolic grave at Bratislava’s Martinský Cintorín (cemetery) was opened at the request of the Civil Association of Andrej Hlinka (OZAH), supported by Bratislava Catholic priest Štefan Herényi. OZAH wants to build a monument to Tiso at the cemetery, which should be unveiled on April 18, 2007, i.e. exactly 60 years after his execution. It is unclear whether the remains really belong to Tiso.

According to some sources, Tiso’s grave was opened in 1970’s by members of the ŠtB, the communist secret service, and the body cremated in Brno.
