Adam Michnik, leader of the former worker's right's group KOR, was released from Warsaw's main prison Saturday. The action was part of the amnesty approved by the Polish parliament on July 21. Mr. Michnik was the first of the four KOR leaders to be released. Authorities also released Seweryn Jaworski, a steelworker who had been deputy leader of Solidarity's Warsaw chapter. Both had been in prison since the December 1981 military crackdown that banned Solidarity.
