US Congressman Barney Frank asked permission to speak to the US Senate about the case of imprisoned Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard and called on US President Barack Obama to answer the many calls for Pollard's immediate release, Pollard activists said on Wednesday.

Frank said that Pollard has payed a price much higher than anyone else that spied on a friend of the United States and more than many who spied for its enemies, according to a statement by Pollard activists.

MK Uri Ariel (National Union) wrote to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Tuesday, saying, "The authorities in the United States are hiding information on Pollard's condition and where he is being hospitalized. There's an urgent need for intervention at the highest levels" of the Israeli government.
