July 28, 1999
The Honorable Ned Walker
U.S. Ambassador to Israel
U.S. Embassy, Hayarkon Street
Re: Jonathan J. Pollard
Dear Ambassador Walker,
May I request a status report regarding my letter of July 9,1999 in
which I requested a number of specific clarifications from the American
Government in writing?
During our recent meeting, as you will recall, we discussed a number
of false charges against my client that have been repeatedly
disseminated in the media by government sources that simply do not hold
up under scrutiny.
For example, the preposterous allegation that my client delivered
virtual rooms full of documents to the Israelis. In point of fact Mr.
Ambassador, my client made a total of eleven (11) "drops" to the
Israelis, using only a small briefcase.
As you yourself acknowledged, Mr. Ambassador, it is troubling that a
relatively small quantity of documents - few enough to be carried in an
ordinary briefcase and to be delivered in no more than 11 "drops" - has
been blatantly misrepresented by government officials as "rooms full of
information" and "hundreds of thousands of documents".
Key issues, such as the volume issue cited above, have been routinely
distorted to misrepresent Jonathan Pollard's case to the American
public. Official, accurate, on-the-record confirmation of the specific
facts of my client's case will set the record straight. In the urgent
interests of equal justice, an immediate response is requested.
Very truly yours,
