What happened last Thursday Nov' 11th.

by Mordechai Vanunu

Dear friends.

First the timing, Israel spies chose the day of Arafat's death, they were ready with this plan to arrest me since Oct' 19th. I saw the paper signed by the same jewish religon judge from Oct' 19th. So they knew Arafat was going to die, and they decided to arrest me on that day.

The police started investigating in May when they arested Peter Hounam. But instead of questioning me, they decided to build a huge case, gathering a lot of interviews in hope to have a real case for going to court and imprisoning me.

So they invaded the church St George cathedral with two motorcycles black clothes helmets, machine guns, 3 cars with more police with machine guns, special detectors ready to use force to grab me, they arrive to Jerusalem since 5:00 AM, ready for the invasion ,until 9:00 AM when they receive the orders, they come with a warrant to search my room, all by the jewish religious judge who didn't respect the holy place church, imagine what Israel would say if the same on jewish synagogue.

The bishop Reyah, come immediately furious of this invading his church demanding from them to put down the machine guns, and to respect the guest house the visitors.

After a few times their chief told them to hide their guns, they search my room 10 people took all the computers and any electronic devices, mobile phone every CD, DVD, books papers. And then they want me to sign their papers, I refused because they did not wrote all what they took.

They took me with them in their car to Petah Tikva, in the police station they started questioned me about all my interviews since May until Oct'. They had all the information from internet, and also from arresting questioning some journalists. I in the begining refused to answer later I told him every thing was all ready published 18 years ago or go see Sunday Times article from 1986.

After 2 hours I demanded to meet my lawer Feldman then they say I am undr arrest, Feldman came, we met,and they agree to go to court at 19:00. I stopped answering their questions, and just waiting to go to the court. In the court they demanded one week house arrest, to come to police for questions any time they call, again to speak about NWS in Israel, we disagree, but the judge impose these rules and set me free.

I continue to speak with the media and returned back to St George. So my view they want to frighten me, and to let me see the church is not helping, can not give me sanctuary. The police love to show they can put me back in prison. But it seems they can not prove that I am revealing any new secrets, only that I am speaking to foreigners. The conclusion all is in the hand of shaback mosad they are deciding what will happen. So if they will not charge me then they should set me free next April.

Anyway this event prove I can not live free here, hope to see you in real freedom.
