Iceland to exhume chess champ Fischer
June 17, 2010 – 9:19AM


Iceland’s Supreme Court has ruled that the remains of chess legend Bobby Fischer can be exhumed for a paternity test to settle a dispute over his estate, public broadcaster RUV reported.

The Supreme Court overturned a ruling on Wednesday by the District Court of Reykjavik last month and decided to allow the disinterment of Fischer’s body to test if he was indeed the father of Jinky Young, 9, from the Philippines, as her mother claims, RUV said.

Fischer, who died on January 17, 2008, is buried at the cemetery of Laugardaelir Church in southern Iceland.
