Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard



Israeli Government gives Pollard one-time grant of one million dollars

THE government has decided to give jailed spy Jonathan Pollard a special government grant of one million dollars, the Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper reported Thursday. The decision to make the one-time grant was made after discussions held by the Prime Minister's Office and the Defense Ministry, following a special request submitted by Likud Minister Dan Naveh, who has visited Pollard in his U.S. jail in the past. Pollard, the former naval intelligence analyst who was arrested in November 1985 by the FBI on charges of spying for Israel, was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment. He has so far served 16 years of his life term. This is the first time he has received any financial assistance from Israel.
