Vanunu - Prisoner of Conscience

Article 9 Article 5 Article 10 Article 18

Mordechai Vanunu has been in solitary confinement in prison in Israel for 12 years, and remains so, despite a brief respite out of solitary.

His crime was to tell the world that Israel had a secret nuclear weapons programme. After fleeing his country for London, he was lured to Rome, where Israel secret agents kidnapped him, transported him to Israel, where he was found guilty of being a traitor to his country. He has been kept in solitary confinement ever since, and is slowly being sent mad. His conscience drove him to inform on the construction of the most gross of human rights violations, nuclear weapons, and he is now being mentally tortured. A violation of human rights?
