Accounting for criminal acts committed by the communist Polish state and its officers requires establishing the principles of their responsibility. An act passed by the Sejm of the Republic of Poland delivered legal grounds to this responsibility from 18 December 1998, concerning the Institute of National Memory – a committee for pursuing cases of felony against the Polish nation. The provisions of this act enable officers of the former communist regime, which conducted criminal proceedings in matters having a political base, to be brought to justice. Judging and sentencing the civil servants responsible for bending the law to realise the political objectives of the Polish United Workers’ Party and communist authorities,constitutes a just and appropriate way of dealing with these past events. Complementing justice in this respect should be a warning to future generations that immorality and injustice will always be subject to retribution.
