In may 2015, the tomb of Thomas Sankara was exhumed for ballistic and DNA expertise in France. The 1st DNA expertise done in Marseille revealed that the DNA found in the grave does not match with any of his family or cannot be clearly identified as Thomas Sankara.
After those conclusion, the heirs of President Thomas Sankara requested a counter-expertise. This 2nd expertise done by Santiago University confirms the results of the first one. For the family lawyer this result cannot stop the prosecution and 11 persons are in jail waiting to judge and 4 are in interim release.
