President Bill Clinton,
The White House
We appeal to you again, as the only compassionate source of hope, on behalf of Jonathan Pollard.
As a lawyer of 28 years experience, and as a student of jurisprudence, I cannot possibly accept as "justice" a life sentence without a trial. No matter how it is rationalized, the "land of the free and the home of the brave" has acted like the former USSR in this case.
Your legal system cannot justify injustice under the cover of "national security" and still retain the respect of other nations.
We are, however, encouraged by your statement last night on the Peter Jennings Show, that "My God is the God of a Second Chance."
Humanly speaking, you are Jonathan Pollard's only hope of a second chance.
on behalf of the Board & members across Canada
