Lindenstauss to examine governments' failed attempts to free Pollard

The Knesset State Control Committee is expected on Monday to instruct State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss to examine the failed attempts of the current and previous governments to secure the release of jailed spy Jonathan Pollard. Committee chairman Zevulun Orlev (National Religious Party), who initiated the move, recently reached a compromise with Kadima representatives by which the report the comptroller compiles will at first be classified and will only be published after it is examined for any censorship requirements.
