Documents renew allegations of Walesa’s past as communist agent

Poland’s Institute of National Remembrance (IPN), a body tasked with investigating Nazi and communist-era crimes, said it is probing documents alleging former President and Solidarity leader Lech Walesa was a communist secret services (SB) informant in the early 1970s.

Prosecutors seized documents from the house of the late Gen. Czeslaw Kiszczak, the last interior minister of the Communist regime, after the widow of Kiszczak, tried to sell to the Institute for 90 000 zloty (about 20 474 euro).
