 Warsaw Voice - Liar, Liar?
The court contends that Oleksy, one of the leaders of the Democratic Left Alliance (SLD) and the former prime minister of the SLD-PSL (Polish Peasants' Party) coalition government in 1995-1996, lied on his vetting statements.
Oleksy has claimed that what he did was meant merely as a training course for the military intelligence service, for which he was supposed to work exclusively in the case of war.
Defending its ruling, the court stated that Oleksy's long contacts with intelligence officers were not meant as a training course, and that the military intelligence service kept Oleksy's personal files and treated him as a regular collaborator until 1978, and gave him a pseudonym (which the defendant denied).

Oleksy, a former Communist government official who became Poland's first ex-Communist prime minister last March, has acknowledged socializing with Alganov, as well as another Russian agent, but says he did not know they were spies until after they left Poland.
