On 25 January 2006, Israel brought 21 charges against Vanunu for the hundreds of interviews he gave with foreign media in 2004.

On 30 April 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.
