New Walesa autobiography rejects agent charge

WARSAW (AP) — Former Polish President Lech Walesa on Monday presented a new autobiography that he hopes will put to rest allegations he served as a communist agent in the 1970s.
"I want everything to be known, precisely," Walesa — who denies that he agreed to collaborate in any way — said a televised news conference.
The Road to the Truth. An Autobiography— the third book by Walesa, 65, a hero of the anti-communist movement — hit Polish bookstores Friday. Walesa said the release was timed to coincide with the 25th anniversary of his 1983 Nobel Peace Prize win.
