Pope's Attempted Murderer Requests Polish Citizenship
In the letter, which is going to be sent to the Polish President Monday Agca states that he is "the spiritual brother of John Paul II, who was a wonderful, perfect human being."
Agca is currently serving a sentence in a prison in Istanbul. "I wish to be a citizen of Poland, the dignified homeland of Carol Voitila (the Pope's civil name)", Agca has written, pointing out that he considers him a "messiah".
Agca's attorney announced that he has already presented the required papers at the Polish consulate in Istanbul and that legal proceedings have already been initiated.
The speaker of the Polish Foreign Ministry has previously stated that the final decision belongs to the Polish President, adding that Agca could face problems related to some formalities.
On May 13, 1891 the Turkish terrorist fired at Pope John Paul II at the "Saint Peter" square in Rome, an event, which triggered the spreading of the so-called "Bulgarian Trace" version connecting Communist Bulgaria's Secret Services with the attempt on the Pope's life.
