US Black Leader Appeals For Pollard Release
The Jerusalem Post - July 5, 1993
An American black leader has appealed to US President Bill Clinton to pardon
convicted spy Jonathan Pollard, who is serving a life sentence for spying for Israel.
In a letter to Clinton, Benjamin L. Hooks, the retired executive director of
the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, claimed that Pollard has been denied due process because "he was sentenced to life imprisonment without a trial by his peers."
