Time.com People Fortune EW WARSAW, Poland (CNN) A trial against Poland's last communist leader, General Wojciech Jaruzelski, is set to reopen. Jaruzelski, 78, has been charged with responsibility for a massacre of protesting workers in 1970. Jaruzelski was defence minister when security troops shot dead 44 shipyard workers protesting against food price rises. ALSO Jaruzelski profile The last court session in the trial was in 1999. The repeated delays were the result of Jaruzelski's declining health and legal wrangling over whether he should be tried in a military or civil court. The Supreme Court ruled it should be conducted in a Warsaw provincial court. Jaruzelski has admitted moral responsibility for the wrongs of the communist system, but has denied any direct involvement in criminal acts. "I feel guilty in the moral sense, not only as the then defence minister, but as somebody who was working in the organs of power," the general said last year.

The case over his alleged role in the 1970 massacre of striking shipyard workers, delayed for years due to politics and the ageing general's ill health, was further postponed on Friday by a Polish court.
