Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard, who was released from a US federal prison on November 20, will ask a district court judge in New York to ease the conditions of his parole on December 14 and not next Wednesday morning as originally set, according to a representative of Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle LLP, Pollard’s law firm.
Pollard, who was convicted in 1987 of spying for Israel, is subject to parole conditions that require him to wear an electronic ankle bracelet at all times for GPS tracking of his whereabouts. He is also subjected to unfettered monitoring and inspection of his computers and those of his employer. Not only can he not move to Israel as he desires, but he cannot leave his home in New York City before 7 a.m. or return home after 7 p.m.
