February 27, 2013 08:41

The Knesset must express the wide consensus in favor of freeing Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard from prison in the US, MK Nachman Shai (Labor) wrote in a letter to temporary Knesset Speaker Binyamin Ben-Eliezer Tuesday.

Shai asked Ben-Eliezer to put the matter on the Knesset's agenda ahead of US President Barack Obama's visit next month.

"We need a broad, intensive public effort to free Pollard," Shai wrote. "It is our duty as MKs to give a platform to the major efforts in Israel and abroad to free him soon."
