TALLINN - An Estonian pastor has struck it rich after a DNA test proved that he was the son of one of the Baltic state's wealthiest men, according to a news report Thursday.
The weekly Eesti Ekpress said a local court formally had recognized Riho Pors as an heir of the late Aadu Luukas, who was a high-profile figure in Estonia.
Luukas died aged 67 in 2006, leaving reported assets of hundreds of millions of kroons (tens of millions of euros, dollars).
Indrek Luukas, who on paper was Luukas' only son and heir, was reportedly unaware that he had a half-brother. Pors, a pastor in the Estonian Pentecostal Church, went to court to prove his claim.
Luukas, who made his fortune in the transit business, was well-known in this country of 1.3 million people and highly respected for his charity work.
