Report: P.M. Funding for Pollard

October 22, 1995 - The Jerusalem Post

The Prime Minister's office is secretly funding the activities of The Public Committee of Jonathan Pollard, Channel 2 news television reported on Friday.

According to the report, some three million dollars has been transferred to the Committee from an institution that is subordinate to the office, with the approval of both Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, and his predecessor Yitzhak Shamir.

Pollard's attorneys have claimed that the Committee has been acting to support the government's interests in avoiding friction with the U.S. rather than in Pollard's interests.
