Mordechai VanunuDespite serving 18 years in prison, including 11 in solitary confinement, Vanunu is forbidden from traveling and speaking to the media. Recently, he was denied a permit to speak before the British Parliament, following an invitation by 54 MPs.

The Israeli Interior Minister and the IDF Central Command have decided to prolong the restrictions on the freedoms of nuclear Whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu. Vanunu’s attorney Avigdor Feldman has been notified on the decision; Feldman told +972 Magazine that he will once more petition the High Court for Justice on Vanunu’s case.

Since his release from prison in 2004, Vanunu hasn’t been allowed to leave Israel’s borders, enter a foreign consulate or embassy, come within 500 meters of international borders, ports and airports or enter the West Bank. He is forbidden from speaking to journalists, and the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) monitors all foreign nationals he meets. The Shin Bet also approves Vanunu’s meetings with a foreign national who the Israeli media says is his partner.

Last month, Vanunu’s request to travel to London for three days was denied. Vanunu was invited to speak before the British Parliament (his invitation was signed by 54 members of Parliament) as well as an Amnesty International event. Attorney Feldman also petitioned the Israeli High Court for Justice against this decision.
