Esther Pollard spoke to the press on Wednesday for the first time since her husband’s release was announced on Tuesday.
"Thanks to God almighty, my beloved husband Jonathan Pollard is completing 30 long hard years of incarceration in the US. Jonathan has served his time. I can hardly wait. I am counting the days, minutes, seconds, when I can have him in my arms, close the door on the past, begin to heal and go on with our lives."
Esther Pollard thanked the public for their constant support throughout the ordeal. "I am afraid if I start to name names I will start now and it will never end," she said with a smile.
