Wałęsa vs. IPN

The National Remembrance Institute (IPN) has published a list of about 2,000 people who were persecuted in Poland under communism. The list does not include former Solidarity leader and ex-president Lech Wałęsa, though it does name his main adversaries who have accused him of having been a communist security service agent. These include Andrzej Gwiazda, Joanna Gwiazda, and Anna Walentynowicz.

"Wałęsa's case is complicated; we will examine it later," said IPN spokesman Andrzej Arseniuk when asked why the former president is not on the list.

Wałęsa commented, "It's their problem; they're ridiculous."

In late June, two IPN historians published a book alleging Wałęsa collaborated with communist security services. Directly after the book was published Wałęsa said he would sue the writers as well as Janusz Kurtyka, head of the IPN.
