Franco's body can be moved from burial site, says Spain's top court

Source: Guardian

Spain’s supreme court has ruled in favour of moving the remains of the former dictator Francisco Franco away from the state mausoleum in which he was buried when he died in 1975, possibly putting an end to decades of controversy over his burial place.

This should allow the government of the Socialist Pedro Sánchez to go ahead with its plans to move the remains from the Valley of the Fallen mausoleum to the family tomb at Mingorrubio El Pardo, a state cemetery on the outskirts of Madrid.

The Socialists have long sought to turn the Valley of the Fallen complex outside Madrid into a memorial to victims of the civil war, unleashed by Franco, in which about 500,000 people were killed.

Nearly 34,000 dead from the civil war are buried there, including many who fought for the losing Republican side and whose bodies were transferred to the site during Franco’s dictatorship without the permission of families.

IMO There has to be a trash dump where they can toss his remains

3. Dump him in a public latrine.

During a recent trip to Cadiz, our tour guide spent the first half of our trip extolling the virtues of bull fighting and the remainder bemoaning the fact that Franco does not receive due credit for the good he did!

4. They should check with the Germans to see if Hitler's bunker is available.

Kindred spirits could commune.

9. That's okay. He wouldn't take up more than one space.

People would probably pay extra to park over his carcass.
