Mordechai Vanunu, the Israeli
nuclear whistleblower, is due in court today, this time to appeal against the
six-month sentence he received late last year for talking to foreigners. This
sentence was not for what he said to them but, in conflict with human rights
legislation, just for talking.
Could this be the latest attempt by the vindictive Israeli security services to mount new charges against Vanunu, just before he goes to court to challenge their previous trumped-up charges?
