Informers outed

The week's news at a glance.

Prague

The Czech Republic has posted the names of people who collaborated with the communist-era secret police on a government Web site. The list names more than 100,000 citizen spies and informers—in a nation of just 10 million people. Anyone who feels he or she has been listed as a collaborator unfairly can file an appeal. Corrections will be added to the list as necessary. Communist Czechoslovakia’s secret police, known as the StB, jailed more than a quarter million people on political charges over four decades. Another 7,000 dissidents were forcibly committed to mental institutions.
