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

0

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.
