Summary note
A file of correspondence and press material concerning crime in Poland. The documents include a translation of an article in the Polish press, which supports the British belief that it is possible to get away with almost any crime in Poland, so long as the crime is not political and does not therefore attract the attention of the Polish secret police. The documents also contrast the resources of the Polish secret police, which has been known to use six cars to trail an American Service Attaché in Warsaw -- and those of the regular Polish police, which lack the basic tools needed to investigate crimes.
  • File date: 1955.
  • Date document(s) were released to the public domain: 1985.
