Latvia’s prime minister defended the decision to publish files on informers for the Soviet secret police after the release revealed previously unknown information on well-known figures in the Baltic country.

The files, hidden from public view for more than two decades, have raised questions about collaboration with the Soviet regime, while a debate on their authenticity and some gaps in the records have complicated the process.

Especially those who spent time behind the iron curtain, what do you make of this?

If authentic, its a great idea. The truth sets you free. The idea of informing on your neighbors just sucks anyway, but I guess they're used to rolling that way in Paranoid-land.

There is a Latvian saying: the best meal for a Latvian is another Latvian. That's probably what it is. Either a part of some factional struggle or "just because".
