Collaboration with communist secret service[edit]

In November 2007, the IPN (Institute of National Rembrance)[3] said that Dariusz Rosati was registered as a secret collaborator "candidate" and "protection" by the Ministry of Interior I Department and II Department. Later on he was registered as a operational contact. However, in July 2007 Dariusz Rosati has made a statement[4] in which he denied that cooperation went beyond sporadic contacts. His lustration declaration was approved by the Ombudsman of the Public Interest and prosecutor of the IPN.[5] Thus he was not a secret collaborator at any time during his life.
