The Nazis who were executing political prisoners were acting quite legally within the German Laws of the time. Nonetheless, once the war was over, they were brought to trial and condemned at Nuremberg, for crimes against humanity. If Wolinska really did what she is accused of then her crime falls well within that same category.
General Fieldorf’s “crime” was only that of fighting for a free Poland – something all
loyal Poles did – he was no common criminal, whereas Wolinska, if guilty, was not only a willing participant in assassination, she was also a traitor. It was through her and people like her that a huge segment of the nation was condemned to a life in exile.
One problem is that back in the 1950's, when General Wolińska was a prosecutor, the Polish government asked Britain to send back ex AK soldiers to face trial. They didn't send even one single person back then for political reasons, so why start now?
The fact that the AK members were not repatriated by the British in the 50s resulted from the British Government’s full awareness that the only “crime” of these people was one of fighting for a free country. To have allowed for their repatriation would have given the British Government a lasting and extraordinarily bad reputation world wide. And justly so. Luckily, the United Kingdom has strong democratic roots and cannot be, or even be thought to be, an accomplice of any regime such as that in power in the USSR and her satellites in that period.
That Wolinska is now old is neither here nor there. There is no expiry date for crimes of a certain magnitude. She can consider herself lucky to have lived a life in relative comfort up till now – something she, it seems (and I add “it seems” because she has yet to be condemned) denied her victims.
