The relics of the Batak martyrs have been returned to the Plovdov bishopric of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church. The remains had previously been in custody of the town council in Batak.

From the article:
With an earlier decision, the Batak Town Hall bestowed to the bishopric the "St. Nedeliya" church where the relics are kept in a special sarcophagus. The Church was a historical site, but is now also a place where mass can be served.

The Bulgarian Holy Synod made the decision to canonize the Batak martyrs in April, 2011.
My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river
