In Poland found documents about Lech Walesa’s cooperation with the secret services


In Poland found documents that may be confirmation of the old rumors about the cooperation of the leader of the Solidarity movement and former President Lech Walesa with the secret services of Communist Poland. About this informed the head of the Institute of national remembrance Lukasz Kaminski, reports “Radio Poland.”

According to Kaminsky, the documents were found in the home of Mary Kiszczak — the widow of the former head of the Ministry of internal Affairs of the Polish people’s Republic General of Czeslaw Kisaka, which was one of the key figures of the regime of martial law in 1981.

Found among the papers was a folder of documents relating to the work of secret agent under the pseudonym “Bolek” and the obligation to cooperate, allegedly signed by Lech Walesa. In reporting this, Kaminsky cited an unnamed expert archivist, who considers that the found documents are authentic.

Walesa himself has denied the existence of documents confirming his collaboration with the secret police. “There are no documents with my signature. If there were, wouldn’t be necessary to forge. In court I will prove it” — Walesa wrote in his microblog on Wykop.

Some Polish historians believe that in the times of the Polish people’s Republic (the so-called Poland in the period from 1952 to 1989) Walesa, who was then the leader of the Solidarity movement, cooperated with the security services of the Polish people’s Republic.

In 2000, the Lustration court of Poland recognized the true statement Lech Walesa that with the secret services of Communist Poland, he did not cooperate. The court then ruled that the documents presented were falsified.

Searches in the house of Mary Kiszczak, during which they confiscated six packets of documents, occurred on February 17, after it said it would sell the Institute of national remembrance, a document of her husband, which, by law, and so belonged to the Institute.
