Pollard Supporters
Go To The Hill

Washington (JTA) — Sup-
porters of clemency for con-
victed spy Jonathan Pollard
have mounted a campaign to
attract backers on Capitol
Hill.
Mr. Pollard's sister, Carol
Pollard, held a briefing last
week on Capitol Hill, at-
tended by several members
of Congress and several
dozen congressional staffers,
during which she urged sup-
port for a commutation of
her brother's life sentence.
Also present in the au-
dience was Capitol Hill ex-
pert Thomas Dine, the
former executive director of
the American Israel Public
Affairs Committee, who is
working with Mr. Pollard's
supporters.
Mr. Pollard, a former
civilian Navy intelligence
analyst, was convicted in
1986 of espionage for Israel
and is currently in the
eighth year of a life
sentence.
His supporters feel his
punishment is excessive and
have filed a petition asking
the administration to review
the controversial case and
grant him clemency.
The Aug. 3 briefing was
organized by four Pollard
supporters in the House of
Representatives: Reps.
Charles Schumer, D-N.Y.,
Gary Ackerman, D-N.Y., Il-
eana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla.,
and Peter King, R-N.Y.
An aide to Mr. Schumer
said that the congressman
had discussed the Pollard

case in a recent meeting
with Attorney General
Janet Reno, and that she
had told him the department
was taking a look at the
issue.
Carol Pollard argued at
the briefing that her
brother's sentence was
"disproportionate in the ex-
treme to others who spied for
allies, or even enemies, of
the United States."
Commuting Jonathan
Pollard's sentence, she said,
would close an "unhealed
wound" between the United
States and Israel. ❑
