ROME, JUNE 4 - The Spanish Supreme Court blocked the exhumation of Francisco Franco's remains from the mausoleum in the memorial for the fallen of the civil war at the cemetery of El Pardo, where his wife is buried. Five judges have unanimously accepted the request of the dictator's family, who await a final sentence on their appeal. The transfer of Franco's remains, decided by the government of Pedro Sanchez, was scheduled for next Monday.
