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. 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 2 July 2007, Israel sentenced Vanunu to six more months in jail for speaking to foreign media in 2004.
On 23 September 2008, the Jerusalem
District Court reduced Vanunu's sentence to three months, "In light of
(Vanunu's) ailing health and the absence of claims that his actions put the country's
security in jeopardy."
In 2010, he served a sentence of 78
days in solitary confinement.
A few weeks after, Vanunu relocated to Tel Aviv where he is "regarded as a Spy, Traitor, Enemy."
On 4 October 2010, the International League for Human Rights-FIDH/AEDH Germany, announced Vanunu was awarded the 2010 Carl-von-Ossietzky-Medal and an international campaign was launched to assure he be at the Award Ceremony, in Berlin on December 12, 2010. As Israel denied Vanunu the right to attend the ceremony was renamed a protest and went on as planned- but with an empty chair where Vanunu should have been.
On 11 October 2010, Vanunu returned to the Supreme Court seeking to rescind the restrictions that have denied him the right to leave Israel.
Israel DENIED his right to even appeal!
On 29 March 2011, Israel's parliament passed a law that allows courts to revoke the citizenship of anyone with dual citizenship convicted of spying or treason.
Vanunu was born and lived in Morocco
until he was 9; and time will tell if his legal team will seize this
opportunity to seek his deportation back to his homeland.
