Mother of Israeli jailed in Russia halts appeal against hacker deportation

The mother of an Israeli woman jailed on drug charges in Russia asks her lawyers to halt efforts to prevent Israel from extraditing a Russian hacker to the U.S.


"After a hard look at the situation, I decided to reverse my decision to appeal,"  says Yaffa Issachar, who maintains that her daighter's harsh sentence is an effort to press Israel to halt the extradition.


"Naama will not be a trump card for the Russian hacker and his people," she says. "I pray that my decision will not aggravate Naama's situation in Russian prison, and I fully trust the president and the prime minister as they continue to work with the Russian president to bring about Naama's immediate release."
