From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Heliodor Píka (July 3, 1897 Štítina (near Opava) – June 21, 1949 Prague) was a Czechoslovak army officer, who was executed by the Communist regime after a fabricated trial, mainly because of his pro-Western attitude during his appointment as the head of the Czechoslovak military mission to the Soviet Union during World War II.

After 1968, his case was reopened. In a renewed process, a military tribunal found him innocent on all charges.
