WARSAW (Sputnik) – The statement was made among the protests against the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party supported by Walesa.
“Walesa is one of the most dangerous agents of the intelligence services [of the Polish People’s Republic] … This name is a symbol of treason,” Macierewicz told the TVP Info broadcaster on Tuesday.
Walesa is said to have been assigned the codename "Bolek" and was paid for his services to the country’s Communist authorities, according to IPN. Later, he actively campaigned against the regime and served as president of the Polish state from 1990 to 1995.
Walesa has denied all the accusations of having links to the intelligence services of the Polish People's Republic.
