Reagan weighing whether to ease Polish trade curbs

President Reagan is weighing a decision to ease US economic sanctions against Poland but will seek the opinions of Polish-Americans and Nobel laureate Lech Walesa before making up his mind, a White House official says.

The President's decision is being made in the aftermath of the Polish government's declaration of amnesty for 652 political prisoners. Andrzej Gwiazda , released yesterday, was the first of seven top leaders of the banned Solidarity union to be freed. About 35,000 prisoners are included under the amnesty, and the first 82 were released Monday, 10 of whom were political prisoners. The four prominent leaders of the dissident group KOR are due to leave prison toward the end of the week.
