    Background: LA CORUNA, SPAIN

    During the recent World Cup football competition in Spain many of the Polish soccer fans, who got permission to travel abroad to support their team, attempted to defect to the west. According to several defectors about half of the 600 Poles who left home for the World Cup have applied for political asylum in Spain and other countries. Most of the defectors had left their families behind in Poland as insurance they would return home. Many of them claimed membership of the banned trade union Solidarity and said they had planned to defect before going to Spain.
