Walesa 'was communist informant'.

POLISH hero Lech Walesa was really an agent for the country's communist secret police, it has been claimed.
The former Solidarity union leader shot to fame for his role in the collapse of communism.
Rumours that he was an informant for the regime with the codename Bolek have circulated for years.
Now investigators say Bolek operated for four years longer than first thought and the "formal de-registration of Lech Walesa as an informant was in 1976".
But Walesa, now 72, said: "You are not able to change the true facts through lies, slander and forgeries."
Poland's communist secret police were known to forge documents implying somebody was an informant to destroy their reputation.
