The new coalition of the Center Party, the Social Democratic Party (SDE), and the Pro Patria and Res Publica Union (IRL) is planning to create an international center for the investigation of the crimes of communism, and to support it with €3m over the coming three years.

The new coalition’s program states that the government will allocate one million euros a year from 2018 to 2020 to create such a center.

Justice Minister Urmas Reinsalu (IRL) has already set up an advisory committee of high-level experts, the aim of which is to advise on the launch of an institution that investigates the crimes committed by communist regimes, and to provide international legal advice regarding them.

Reinsalu stressed that by now, representatives of more than ten countries were working together toward reaching an agreement regarding the issue. The cooperation is coordinated by the Estonian Ministry of Defense.
