Broiges of the week: Jonathan Pollard v the state of Israel

Jonathan Pollard, who is in the 23rd year of a jail term in the US for spying for Israel, is taking his erstwhile employers to court. The 54-year-old Pollard has filed a suit in Tel Aviv district court to refute statements that he and his wife Esther have been receiving money from the Israeli government. He says he hasn't received a shekel. In fact, he's not interested in money at all - but he would quite like to be released.
