Chess icon Fischer's body exhumed over paternity

REYKJAVIK, Iceland – Authorities in Iceland have exhumed the body of American chess champion Bobby Fischer to determine whether he is the father of a 9-year-old girl from the Philippines.

Police district commissioner Olafur Helgi Kjartansson said Fischer's corpse was dug up from a cemetery near Selfoss in southern Iceland early Monday in the presence of a doctor, a priest and other officials.

Kjartansson said the exhumation "was done in a professional and dignified way and according to law. The privacy of the deceased was protected at all times."

He said Fischer was reburied after DNA samples were taken.

Fischer died in Iceland in January 2008 aged 64. He left no will, and legal wrangling continues over his estate.

Last month Iceland's supreme court ruled Fischer should be exhumed so DNA testing could determine whether he was the father of Jinky Young, whose mother Marilyn says she had a relationship with Fischer.

Jinky, who lives in the Philippines with her mother, flew to Iceland to provide her own blood sample in December.

Fischer, who was born in Chicago and raised in Brooklyn, New York, became world famous in 1972 when he defeated Boris Spassky of the Soviet Union for the world championship in a tournament, played in Reykjavik, that brimmed with Cold War symbolism.

Fischer became an American hero, but his later life was dominated by his erratic, eccentric behavior.

He lost his world title in 1975 after refusing to defend it against Anatoly Karpov. He dropped out of competitive chess and largely out of view, spending time in Hungary and the Philippines and emerging occasionally to make outspoken and often outrageous comments, sometimes attacking the United States.

Fischer was arrested in Japan in 2004 and threatened with extradition to the U.S. to face charges of breaking international sanctions against the former Yugoslavia by playing a chess match there in 1992.

Fischer renounced his U.S. citizenship and spent nine months in custody before chess-loving Iceland granted him citizenship.

Fischer lived in Iceland from 2005 until his death and is buried about 30 miles (50 kilometers) east of the capital, Reykjavik.

Don't just open your mouth and prove yourself a fool....put it in writing.

It gets harder the more you know. Because the more you find out, the uglier everything seems.

The child has no claim to US Citizenship:

1) Bobby Fischer has lived out of the US for decades.

2) Bobby Fischer renounced his US Citizenship a long time ago.

True and true but the woman who believes she is his child is

probably after the disputed estate rather than a US visa or

citizenship. I don't see the advantage of going to the US

without the benefit of the estate to support her.

If she succeeded in becoming the beneficiary of the estate

and then wanted to come to the US on that basis, I agree

that the USCIS wouldn't roll out the welcome wagon.

I'm sure an immigration lawyer would take the approach

that she obtained US citizenship by birth when he WAS

a citizen and was innocent of any subsequent actions

he took regarding his citizenship.

The question hinges on whether his intention is required

for her to assume US citizenship and I don't know the

answer to that. If it is required she has no case.

Amerasians

Amerasians presumably fathered by USC's in Viet Nam

were given the right to come to the US, but in the Philippines

this was the result:

Legal action

A class action suit was filed in 1993 on their behalf in the International Court of Complaints in Washington, DC, to establish Filipino American children’s rights to assistance. The court denied the claim, ruling that the children were the products of unmarried women who provided sexual services to US service personnel in Olongapo, Subic Bay and Angeles City and were therefore engaged in illicit acts of prostitution. Such illegal activity could not be the basis for any legal claim.[8]

It's not a very nice assumption to draw the conclusion

that all women who had sex with US service personnel

were prostitutes, but that's in fact what the US policy did

in the Philippines but not in Viet Nam.
