A bust of Václav Drbola was unveiled in Babice in the Třebíč area on Saturday in memory of the priest who was sentenced to death and executed by the Communists in 1951. Drbola was one of 11 who received the maximum sentence in a series of show trials conducted by the former regime in connection with the murder of the three Communist functionaries in the area. The Church has launched the process of the late priest’s beatification; around 300 people attended the unveiling on Saturday.
