Washington (AFP) – Jonathan Pollard, a former US Navy analyst convicted of spying for Israel, will be released on parole November 21 after serving 30 years in prison, his lawyers said Tuesday.

“The decision to grant parole was made unanimously by the three members of the (US) Parole Commission, who make their decisions independently of any other US government agency,” the lawyers said in a statement. “The decision is not connected to recent developments in the Middle East.”
