"Aunt Mariska (Kadar’s wife) called me: ‘My husband wants a priest’ she said," Nemeth, who headed the country’s last Communist-era government in 1988-1990, told Reuters.

"I still remember the Catholic priest whom I found, he was a short man called Biro, I think," he added.

"I don’t know whether Kadar atoned to him or what he told him, you can’t ask a priest about such things. There is no way to find out now — everybody has died since."
