Convicted nuclear spy Mordechai Vanunu lost his bid to improve conditions at Ashkelon prison, where he is serving an 18-year sentence for allegedly disclosing Israel’s nuclear weapons capabilities to a British newspaper.
The High Court of Justice rejected his complaint Monday.
Vanunu, once a technician employed at Israel’s nuclear facility at Dimona, was lured from London to Rome in 1988 and kidnapped by Israeli agents, who brought him to Israel.
He was tried there in secret, and convicted.
He is not permitted to talk to or be photographed by the media.
