Mordechai Vanunu Arrested At Jerusalem Checkpoint

Mordechai Vanunu Arrested At Jerusalem Checkpoint

We ask Labor's Pines Paz for a generous last act as minister

Forgotten maybe by the big world, but not by the Israeli authorities Mordechai Vanunu was arrested today at a Jerusalem checkpoint. He had apparently visited somebody in the Jerusalem suburb Al-Ram, which is divided in two by the Wall. It was argued by the police that Vanunu had left Jerusalem in violation of the restrictions imposed on him ever since he was released from 18 years imprisonment.

See the English-language news updates from the Israeli press:



and Ha'aretz:,7340,L-3171301,00.html

Now that Labor is going to leave the government - maybe we can convince Labor interior minister Pines Paz to free Vanunu from these ridiculous restrictions - as his last ministerial act.

Please transmit this message by phone + fax + email to:

Minister of the Interior, Pines Paz

2 Kaplan St., Qiryat Ben-Gurion

P.O. Box 6158, 91061 Jerusalem
