Walesa denies allegations of communist agent past

Poland’s Institute of National Remembrance found out that some of the documents collected at the house of a former communist notable confirm that Solidarity founder and anti-communist movement legend Lech Walesa was a communist secret services agent in early 1970s, institute’s head Lukasz Kaminski told a news briefing Thursday. Walesa immediately reacted in social media post saying: “There cannot be any materials written by me.”

Walesa, 72, has repeatedly denied the allegations calling them “absurd” and was cleared of collaboration by a special vetting court in 2000.
