Corruption in Iraq. This message has been received today.


Dear Editor,
One thing may change the November's election.

Coalition of corruption
Polish politics make private business on the war. The corruption range to the
highest authorities.

Polish Prime Minister Marek Belka was earlier the Chief of International
Coordination Commitment in Iraq. As the chief of the commitment, he supported
a choice of Bank Millennium (in which he was a member of the supervisory
board) to the consortium that would menage the Trade Bank of Iraq.
Accidentally, the Prime Minister admitted (in Polish parliament) that he had
known how the members of the commission had voted - nevertheless, he was not a
member of the commission.

Another matter regards to the public tender that decided about a contract on
equipment for Iraq's army. In consortium that won the first tender was
"Ostrowski Arms" - the firm that had not a license on the trade of weapons and
whole firm was consists of a few persons. What is interesting in this firm?
The owner and the chief of the firm was Andrzej Ostrowski - a good
acquaintance of President Aleksander Kwasniewski. Mr. Ostrowski had issued a
book about the calendar of the choice of F-16 to Polish army. It was only one
book wroted by him ...and President Kwasniewski wrote an introduction to this
book. At present, Mr. Andrzej Ostrowski is the accused of a trade of weapons
without a license.

After the journalist's investigation regards Ostrowski Arms the public tender
in Iraq was cancel. What the tender was it? The firm without license on a
trade of weapons is the one of winners. The firm with a few people staff, not
famous in branch... However, good famous for Aleksander Kwasniewski.

I think you should confirm both events: the run of the choice of the
consortium managing the Trade Bank of Iraq and the choice of the unknown firm
without a license on weapons trade to the consortium that was expected to
equip the Iraq's army.

The international corruption affair will range to the high Bush's
administration and to the highest Polish authorities.

Enclosed please find more details, nevertheless, it is only in Polish:[1]

Best Regards,
Jaroslaw Suplacz
