Netanyahu Says He is Committed to Bringing Pollard to Israel
By Aharon Farkash & Y. Schwartz
The Prime Minister's office published this past Monday an announcement saying, "Israel is committed to bring back Jonathan Pollard to Israel. The Prime Minister will continue to make efforts until he is brought to Israel." This announcement followed a rare interview which Pollard gave on Monday to "Chadashot 11".
In the interview, Pollard revealed that his wife is ill and he cannot adequately care for her "because of the restrictions placed upon me upon my release. I have no freedom of movement. I cannot pick myself up and go to places where she can get help. I therefore made contact with Netanyahu via Ambassador Dermer, asking him to talk to President Trump and request that he ease the conditions of my release so that I can assist my ailing wife."
