Pollard Asks Court For Citizenship

The New York Jewish Week - Week of October 23-27, 1995

Jerusalem (JTA) - Jonathan Pollard has petitioned Israel's High Court of Justice to grant him citizenship.

Pollard, who was convicted in the United States in 1987 of spying for Israel and sentenced to life in prison, issued the petition after Interior Minister Ehud Barak rejected his earlier request a month ago.


Israeli citizenship was later granted on November 21, 1995.
