Pollard's lawyer tries to win a relaxation of conditions requiring Pollard to submit to a curfew and monitoring of his workplace computer and his whereabouts
At separate meeting on Thursday with Vice President Pence, Netanyahu discussed U.S. support for Israel at the UN and efforts to secure U.S. recognition of Israeli sovereignty in the Golan Hts., Israeli sources said.
Pollard's plans to argue that the parole requirements are arbitrary and Pollard poses no security risk, since he has not had access to classified government information for more than three decades.
American convicted of spying for Israel would continue to wear electronic tracking device, submit computer to monitoring, after judge rules he still poses flight risk and that documents compromised by him 30 years ago were still highly classified.
Pollard's lawyer argued in court that the parole commission imposed arbitrary requirements that he wear an electronic tracking device and submit his work computer to monitoring.
U.S. Parole Commission fails to prove that Pollard continues to carry classified information 31 years after he was jailed, brief filed with U.S. federal court says.
In response to a petition to ease some of Pollard's parole restrictions, official says he had access to human intelligence that could still prove harmful should it be disclosed.
The information is sensitive enough to justify severe restrictions on Pollard's movement and its disclosure could harm U.S. national security, James Clapper writes in letter to parole commission.
According to the proposal, Israel will pay Pollard a monthly pension to ensure he lives out the remainder of his life in dignity: 'We have a moral debt,' lawmaker says.
The gathering was in no way meant to convey the Jewish establishments embrace of the former spy, much less any aspect of the crimes for which he was convicted, says community head Malcolm Hoenlein.
