No more leverage?
American-Israeli Na'ama Isachar, 26, was sentenced last month to 7.5 years in Russian prison after being charged of smuggling narcotics. Her case has made international headlines because she is believed to be embroiled in a diplomatic standoff between Moscow, Washington and Jerusalem. But a Russian hacker was just extradited to the US and Isachar’s family is worried they’ve lost leverage to shorten her sentence. Host Marco Werman speaks with Isachar’s sister living in Los Angeles.
