Polish Nobel Laureate Lech Walesa admits to ‘mistake’ after spy accusations


Former Polish President Lech Walesa has denied cooperating with Communist intelligence agencies during the Soviet era. He did, however, admit to making a “mistake.”

In an entry on his blog on Friday, Lech Walesa denied all accusations of working with security agencies while Poland was a Soviet satellite state.

“I did not cooperate with the security agency. I did not take any money,” Walesa wrote, adding that he had made a “mistake.” He added that he would not revel details of the “mistake.”

“There is a person – a perpetrator, who is still alive who should reveal the truth and I’m counting on it. I had a soft heart,” the Nobel Laureate said in his microblog.

Walesa’s comments came a day after Lukasz Kaminski, director of Poland’s National Remembrance Institute (IPN), reported about a secret service document signed by Walesa. The IPN is responsible for prosecuting Communist-era crimes.
