Two historians, Slawomir Cenckiewicz and Piotr Gontarczyk, who work for the Institute of National Remembrance (IPN), are about to publish a book about Lech Walesa, former leader of Gdansk shipyard, former hero of the Solidarity movement and former, somewhat unsuccessful President of Poland. This will revive the oft-repeated accusations that in the early seventies, Walesa was working for the Communist Secret Police and that, while President, he abstracted a number of documents from his police file that would have proved the links.
Poland's political world, including former Solidarity activists, are divided on the issue and the story is likely to run and run.
Telewizja Polska showed a 20 minute documentary on the subject, which interviewed the historians and a few other people. Lech Walesa has said he will sue the TV station.
