Israeli Minister Livnat Declares Pollard An Official Agent

March 3, 1998 - IINS News Service

Minister of Communications Limor Livnat stated that convicted spy Jonathan Pollard was acting as an Israeli agent - and this is a fact.

Livnat stated that we all know the realities at hand and it is time the government of Israel officially admits to it and takes responsibility for Pollard's release.

MK (Moledet) Rechavam Ze'evi stated that in Israel's efforts to obtain the release of the Mossad agents apprehended in September in Jordan, Israel even agreed to release Hamas spiritual leader Sheik Achmed Yassin.

Ze'evi stated that, "If we can release a despicable person such as Yassin to obtain the release of our own agents, we must do more on behalf of Pollard."
