Sidney Stanley

AZL flag holder TransparentSidney (or Sydney) Stanley (né Solomon Wulkan, alias Solomon Koszyski, alias Stanley Rechtand, later Schlomo ben Chaim) (1899/1905 – 1969) was an illegal Jewish immigrant to the UK via Poland. His dubious activities formed the principal basis for allegations of corruption among British government ministers and civil servants leading to the Lynskey tribunal of 1948. Just prior in November 1947 an MI5 report recorded that cabinet minister Manny Shinwell had been passing information to a man named “Stanley” for Zionist terrorist group Irgun. Though there were no prosecutions, the enquiry resulted in ministerial resignations.
