Subcommittee to Discuss Government Actions for Pollard


The Security, Foreign Affairs and International Trade Subcommittee of the Knesset State Control Committee is scheduled to hold a hearing, Tuesday morning, on a request for an opinion by the State Comptroller on government efforts to secure the release of Jonathan Pollard, who is serving a life term in the United States for passing classified information to Israel.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said, during her recent visit to Israel, that she does not expect any change in Pollard's status in the near future.
