Jonathan Pollard has not yet been informed of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's decision to officially request that the US release the Israeli agent, Esther Pollard said in an Israel Radio interview on Wednesday.
According to Pollard's wife, Jonathan is in very ill health and therefore could not call her so she could give him the good news.
Esther Pollard said that Jonathan has been hospitalized in prison three times recently. She added that he had to cancel a visit by Jewish leaders on Tuesday because of his health.
"This good news can give him power to continue," said Pollard.
