Details of Communist intelligence network unveiled

The Institute for the Study of Totalitarian Regimes and Security Forces Archive on Monday announced the publication of details of the Communist regime’s intelligence service on the internet. The step is the first of its kind in a former Communist country according to the institute. It said the list of names includes 985 staff out of the total 1,028 working at the end of November 1989. Staff worked in foreign embassies and trade offices, in television and radio and at international institutions. The intelligence service was wound up in February 1990.
