Ann Pollard Asks for Recognition as Agent - by Israel

Almost 30 years after the Jonathan Pollard affair was uncovered, and 20 years since her own release from a five-year prison stint for her part in the case, Jonthan Pollard's ex-wife, Ann, has asked for official recognition by the State of Israel as an operative who was working in the State's interests.

In a conversation with Galei Tzahal (Army Radio), Ann Pollard stated that she has not been able to rebuild her life, despite the many years that have passed, and so has decided to fight for what is due to her. "I want it to be officially recognized - what happened to Jonathan and to me - there are benefits that are automatically awarded to every wounded soldier of the State of Israel," she said.

It should be noted that in the recent local elections, Ann Pollard joined the list of those running for city council in Ramat Gan.
