In fall 1986 Mordechai
Vanunu, an Israeli citizen who had been employed at the Dimona Nuclear
Power Plant in the Negrev Desert, gave evidence to the London Sunday
Times newspaper that Israel was developing nuclear weapons. He wanted to
inform the world. It was an act of conscience. He was convicted of
treason and sentenced to 18 years in Israeli prison. He spent the first
eleven and a half years in solitary confinement. He was released from
prison April 21, 2004 with severe restrictions
on his activities for at least the next six months and possibly
indefinitely. Vanunu may not communicate with foreigners and may not
travel into certain areas of Israel.
