Jonathan Pollard has instructed his attorney to categorically reject

an agent who was employed in an operation not sanctioned by the
Pollard stated, "I did not spend 13 years in prison in order to endorse
a lie. The truth must come out, so that I may be freed. The truth is
simple and clear: I was an Israeli agent employed by the LAKAM branch
of Intelligence in an operation that was fully sanctioned by the
Government of Israel. Anything less than that is a distortion of the
truth that is counterproductive to the goal of securing my release."
Pollard has instructed his attorney to cease all negotiations.
