Fischer Not to Be Released Soon

While Bobby Fischer’s lawyers have received a special passport from Icelandic officials, Japanese officials claim they are no closer to releasing the former chess master.

A Justice Ministry official in Japan quoted in Reuters claims “None of the formal procedures needed for (Fischer’s) departure have been carried out.”

Fischer is currently in solitary confinement after a reported scuffle with guards.
