Anne Pollard Moving
To Low-Security Prison?

New York (jTA) — Anne
Henderson-Pollard is to be
transferred from the Federal
Medical Center in Rochester,
Minn., to a minimum securi-
ty women's prison in Dan-
bury, Conn., according to her
lawyer, Nathan Dershowitz.
But while her father, Ber-
nard Henderson, said the
change would be a "tremen-
- dons improvement," he
repeated a call for a nation-
wide campaign among Jewish
and interfaith organizations
to demand her parole.
Henderson-Pollard, 28, is
serving two concurrent five-

year prison terms for acting
as an accessory to the es-
pionage activities of her hus-
band, Jonathan Jay Pollard.
Jonathan Pollard, the one-
time civilian intelligence
analyst for the U.S. Navy, was
convicted of selling classified
information to Israel. He has
been sentenced to life im-
prisonment with no chance of
parole.
Public concern for Anne
Henderson-Pollard's in-
carceration has focused on
her medical condition. She
reportedly suffers from
biliary dyskinesia, a rare
digestive ailment which
causes her difficulty when
digesting food, but she has
been denied proper medical
treatment, according to fami-
ly spokespersons and at-
torneys for the Pollards.
Dershowitz said he had
received a letter from J.
Michael Quinlan, director of
the U.S. Bureau of Prisons,
saying that Henderson-
Pollard is to be transferred to
the Danbury camp, a facility
that is 'level one or lowest
level, security. The facility is
much closer to her family,
who live in Secaucus, N.J.
"I think it's a very ap-
propriate facility," Dershowitz
said, adding that he
understands physicians will
be available to Henderson-
Pollard, and that the facility
has arrangements for expert
consultations with the Yale
Medical Center, where Carol
Pollard, Jonathan's sister,
works.
John Pendleton, public af-
fairs officer at the Bureau of
Prisons, said that "the deci-

sion has not been finalized at
this point, although that is
under consideration:'
Pendleton said the bureau
is awaiting a medical evalua-
tion to be certain that place-
ment in Danbury is ap-
propriate and that
Henderson-Pollard's medical
needs can be taken care of
there.
Dershowitz credited both
public pressure and the in-
tervention of Quinlin for the
change in policy toward
Henderson-Pollard.
Although the media is still
not allowed to see the
Pollards, Dershowitz believes
this policy will have to change
once Henderson-Pollard is
moved to the Danbury
facility.
Meanwhile, Henderson-
Pollard "looks terrible," has
visible skin rashes over her
face and hands, and her eyes
are infected, according to
Rabbi Avraham Weiss of the
Hebrew Institute of River-
dale, who had a six-hour visit
with Henderson-Pollard last
week at the Federal Medical
Center in Rochester.
Groups around the country
that are active on behalf of
the Pollards are sending out
a petition that Anne
Henderson-Pollard be parol-
ed, for which she was eligible
as of August, and that she
receive proper medical care,
according to Bernard
Henderson.
Weiss' visit to Henderson-
Pollard followed one to
Jonathan Pollard about a
month ago at the U.S.
Penitentiary in Marion, Ill.
The Illionis prison is the
highest maximum security
prison in the country. Most of
the prisoners are those who
have caused trouble in other
prisons and who are con-
sidered extremely dangerous
within the prison system,
Weiss said.
After his meeting with
Pollard, said Weiss, he was
called into the office of the
associate warden, W.S. Scott,
who spoke to him "in the
most disrespectful, bordering
on anti-Semitic, tones."
Although Weiss' meeting
with Pollard took place in a
private room, Scott said that
the prison had eavesdroped
on the entire conversation.
Alan Dershowitz, Jonathan
Pollard's lawyer, supported
Weiss's account, saying that
prison authorities had told
him the rabbi's conversation
with Pollard had been
monitored.
