He died in 1960 while under house arrest. Croatian historiography, however, now shows him mostly in a positive light, as "a righteous person and a victim of historical circumstances."
The Zagreb daily Jutarnji List quoted sources from the Vatican who said the controversial Croatian cardinal, who has already been beatified, could soon be declared a saint, but that this will probably happen in the fall rather than in May, as has been expected.
