Confiscator list on Internet soon

THE NATIONAL Memory Institute (ÚPN) wants to publish the names of those who confiscated Jewish property after the creation of the Slovak Nazi-puppet state during the World War II, the Pravda daily wrote.

ÚPN Director Ján Lángoš told MPs on May 26 that a register of over 10,000 names and the property they confiscated would appear on the Internet later this year.

The ÚPN also plans to release detailed information about confiscated companies. The information will include each company's location, the number of so-called liquidation documents, the names of the liquidators, and that of the confiscator.

The ÚPN will also publish a list of top-ranking Czechoslovak and Slovak Communist Party members.
