Installing a permanent surveillance camera on the site, storing the recorded content and including the grave at Vilnius’ Rasos Cemetery in regular police patrol routes would help prevent vandals’ attacks on the final resting place of Pilsudski’s mother and his heart, the Prosecutor General’s Office said on Friday.
Vilnius police in early May started a pre-trial investigation into an incident of vandalizing the grave, but the capital’s prosecutors have suspended the probe after all possible means to identify the perpetrator or perpetrators were exhausted.
The investigation revealed that the video camera installed at the grave was not working at the time of the latest incident.
Acts of vandalism against the grave have occurred before. Several individuals have been convicted for vandalizing the grave in November 2012.
