INTRODUCTION:

Response to Israel Minister of Justice vis a' vis Human Rights of Mordechai Vanunu

Mordechai Vanunu Addresses Israel's Intent RE:



Open Letter Response to State of Israel Ministry of Justice
The Human Rights and Foreign Relations Department:

Dear Sir/Madam,

Ref: 952


Thank you for your letter dated July 21, 2010, that I received in my gmail on July 29.

I would now like to address all "relevant authorities" and the State of Israel Ministry of Justice The Human Rights and Foreign Relations Department points 1-13: regarding

On April 30, 2007, the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court, convicted Vanunu on 14 [out of 21] counts of violating a court order prohibiting him from speaking to foreign journalists in 2004. Vanunu was also convicted for traveling the four miles from Jerusalem to Bethlehem when he hoped to attend Christmas Eve mass at the Church of the Nativity, his first Christmas after being released from 18 years in jail [most of it in solitary] on April 21, 2004.

On July 2, 2007, Israel sentenced Vanunu to six more months in jail for speaking to foreign media in 2004.

On September 23, 2008, the Jerusalem District Court reduced Vanunu's six-month jail sentence for speaking with foreign media in 2004, to three months, "In light of his ailing health and the absence of claims that his actions put the country's security in jeopardy."

After appealing that sentence, the Israeli Supreme Court returned Vanunu to jail on May 23, 2010, after they refused his counter-offer to do three-months of community service in Arab east Jerusalem, the only community he has known since 21 April 2004.

The Court insisted Vanunu must serve in west Jerusalem, which is 99% Jewish-populated, but Vanunu feared attack there by angry Israelis, most of whom consider him a traitor, and thus his three month sentence in solitary began on 23 May 2010.
