Vanunu al-Quds out

On 11 May, nuclear whistle-blower Mordechai Vanunu lost his final appeal against a sentence passed for talking to foreign journalists and thus breaking Israeli restrictions on talking to foreigners. Amnesty International declared Vanunu a prisoner of conscience for the first time when he started his three-month sentence on 23 May. Mordechai refused an offer of community service in West Jerusalem instead, after his request to do it in East Jerusalem was denied.
