Then after WSI was disbanded on the date of the 30th of September 2006, fileswere at the disposal of new services: SKW (Military Counter-intelligenceService), SWW (Military Intelligence Service), IPN (Institute of NationalRemembrance), CAW (Central Military Archives). The transformations performedin the Army after 1989 left intact the basic structures and the old cadre of thespecial forces and subordinated them to the management of the officersoriginating from the 2nd Directorate of the Staff General. The files of former military services or files produced by individual WSI units on an on-going basis,were systematically destroyed and hidden. In turn, the process of establishing of a new system aimed at hiding material information before the vetting-relatedlegislation coming into force was initiated. For instance, an attempt at destroyingthe personal data by deleting them with the use of a marker in the register of agents from ‘Wybrze
skie’ [Three-Cities: Gda
sk-Sopot-Gdynia Region]from the 70’ies and 80’ies was proved. The Report contains 24 documentaryannexes, in which the problems referred to above are discussed in more detailcomparing to the Report itself.

ba Kontrwywiadu Wojskowego and S
baWywiadu Wojskowego]). Organizational changes made in the end of eightiesand in the beginning of nineties did not have a crucial impact. [Military] Service(s)have played a function of political apparatus continuously: amongst almost 10thousand collaborators of the military services acting inside the country as wellas abroad in the year 1990, at least 2500 (roughly 25%) consisted of peoplebeing very well-placed in central administrative and economic institutions of thecountry.
