Pollard back in prison after operation

Pollard not allowed to remain in hospital for follow-up medical care

Convicted spy Jonathan Pollard was returned to prison in North Carolina after undergoing successful surgery on his kidneys Wednesday.


Pollard was not allowed to remain in the hospital for follow-up medical care.



His wife, Esther, spoke to Pollard on the phone and said that he may have to return to the hospital soon for additional surgery. She added that it was imperative he return home in order to receive treatment.


Following the operation Wednesday, Esther Pollard said that her husband was not in danger, but that he was suffering horrible pain.


"Since the news of Jonathan's operation broke yesterday, we have been overwhelmed with an outpouring of support and concern from the Israeli people and from the Israeli media for which we are deeply grateful," she said.


"While I am deeply relieved that Jonathan came through the operation and is now recovering, this is not a solution, just a temporary fix. He needs to come home now where he can receive the care and treatment he desperately needs," she said.
