Polish military intelligence officers at the gate

A group of employees of the defunct Military Intelligence Services (WSI) have not been allowed entry to the main building on the unit’s premises in Warsaw, Monday morning. The services have been officially dissolved on September 30th retaining only part of the former personnel. As of October 1st two new organizations have been formed – the Military Intelligence and Counterintelligence. A spokesman for deputy defense minister Antoni Macierewicz, who has been appointed to enforce the necessary procedures, said some of the former staff that did not receive positive verification had not been notified about the fact. He explained they should be on stand by for further instructions. Unofficial sources say, the group included many intelligence officers summoned to headquarters from foreign missions.
