US set to release Jonathan Pollard, who spied for Israel

NEW YORK: Former spy Jonathan Pollard is set to be paroled from a federal prison in North Carolina on Friday, 30 years after he was caught selling American intelligence secrets to Israel.

The 61-year-old will be on a short leash as he rebuilds his life as a free man.

One supporter says Pollard will have to wear a GPS device to monitor his location. He’ll also have a curfew and be barred from using the internet.

Pollard’s lawyers have said they have lined up housing and a job in the New York area.

Pollard was arrested in 1985 and given a life sentence in 1987 in a case that still complicates diplomacy between the US and Israel.
