A man convicted of selling Israeli nuclear secrets to a British newspaper asked to be moved to a cell with Arab security prisoners. Mordechai Vanunu’s petition to a Beersheba court follows a recent decision allowing him to leave solitary confinement and mix with other prisoners during the day. Vanunu, a convert to Christianity, claims that Israel’s General Security Service is sending Jewish prisoners in to “bother” him.
