Restrictions Renewed Against Vanunu
Mordechai Vanunu was told on the morning of October 21 that his restrictions were renewed for another 6 months.
Shortly before being released from prison on April 21 after serving his complete 18 year sentence, the Israeli government informed the nuclear whistleblower about a long list of oppressive restrictions placed on him, severely limiting his freedom of movement and speech. He was told that most of the restrictions were to be reviewed 6 months after his release, and the restriction forbidding him to leave Israel was to be reviewed in one year (April 21, 2005).
Now that the bulk of the restrictions have been renewed, all restrictions will be reviewed in April. In July, Vanunu's appeal of the restrictions to the Israeli Supreme Court was rejected.
There are no charges against Mordechai Vanunu and he has served his full sentence. These restrictions are an outrageous injustice and violation of international law. Please tell the Israeli government to lift the restrictions against Mordechai Vanunu and let him go.
