Three Russian police officers have been arrested for using the credit card of a victim of the April plane crash that killed Polish president Lech Kaczynski.
Some 6,000 zlotys (£1,200) were withdrawn from the bank account of Andrezej Przewoznik, who headed Poland's committee in charge of monitoring national historic sites.
He was part of the Polish delegation heading to Katyn near the western Russian city of Smolensk for a commemoration ceremony marking the 1940 massacre of thousands of Polish army officers at the orders of Soviet leader Joseph Stalin.
"Three members of the OMON (riot police) who committed this disgusting act were quickly arrested thanks to co-operation between the Polish Security Agency and the Russian special services," Polish government spokesman Pawel Gras told Radio Zet.
The president's Russian-made Tupolev Tu-154 crashed on April 10 at Smolensk in western Russia while trying to land in thick fog, killing all 96 people on board
