Political Testament of Leon Štukelj
1899 - 1999

Dr. Pauko, son-in-law of the Olympic Champion Leon Štukelj, read the political testament of Leon Štukelj:

" In the Republic of Slovenia it is necessary to put an end to neo-communism, no matter what name the various neo-communist political parties may devise as their disguise. Parties of the Spring should get together and form a united political force. It is high time for Slovenia to become democratic in accordance with the precepts of the civilized Europe."

Regretfully, he did not say this in public when the reds were showing him off as their crown jewel.

The fact that his statement could only be made after his death speaks eloquently what kind of climate exists in Slovenia so far as free speech is concerned.
