Israeli nuclear whistle-blower Mordechai Vanunu was charged with violating the terms of his release from prison. A 21-count indictment was filed against Vanunu in Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court on Thursday, charging him with meeting foreign journalists despite being forbidden to do so since he ended an 18-year prison term for treason last April. “Since his release, Vanunu has systematically violated” the restrictions, the Justice Ministry said in a statement. “In the many interviews he has granted, he passed on information on sensitive and classified matters allegedly related to materials produced by the Dimona nuclear reactor.”
