Peres "Aware of Public Feeling About Halamish Brothers"
(IsraelNN.com) President Shimon Peres was "open to listen and tried to give a feeling of impartiality," Prof. Eli Pollak of the "Professors' Forum for National and Economic Strength" said Wednesday of the meeting between the President and the forum that took place a day earlier.
The most meaningful news from the meeting, according to Pollak, is that "the President is now aware of the matter of the pardon for the Halamish brothers. The President had not been aware of the feeling among the public that an injustice was perpetrated," he added.
Peres told the professors he would discuss the request for a pardon for the Halamish brothers when the request reaches his desk. "We did not expect more than this answer," Pollak said.
