VANUNU RE-ARRESTED BY DOZENS OF ARMED POLICE; LATER RELEASED TO HOUSE ARREST

by : Free Mordechai Vanunu
Sunday November 14, 2004 - 13:41
2 comments

Israeli nuclear whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu was released from custody that evening, following his arrest in a dramatic and excessive show of force early Thursday morning, November 11, at St. George’s Cathedral in East Jerusalem. He has been punished yet again, and placed under house arrest for seven days. His cell phones were returned to him, but he is still waiting for his laptop computers to be returned.

Vanunu was warned that he is still bound by the severe restrictions placed on him by Israeli authorities when he was released on April 21 after serving his complete 18 year sentence. Issues regarding his re-arrest are under investigation, and no formal charges have been filed. However, Vanunu was told that he may face charges for interviews that he has given to foreign media.

When Vanunu was released from custody, he told the press, "Once, twice, three times - how many times will I be punished for the same act?" Thursday morning, at least 30 armed police stormed the compound of St. George’s Cathedral, terrifying the clergy as well as pilgrims and guests having breakfast. The force consisted of special unit officers on motorcycles as well as additional police in other vehicles.

A reporter for Israel’s Channel 2 evening news called the raid "unnecessary and embarrassing" and wondered aloud why the police hadn’t simply asked Vanunu to report for questioning.

By the time he was released from detention, the general opinion in the Israeli media was that, once again, Israel’s security services had gone out of their way to make Vanunu headline news. After his release Vanunu told friends that he was well and glad to be back at St. George’s, but that as long as he is kept in Israel against his will, he remains a prisoner. He thanked his supporters for their immediate response to his arrest.

Daniel Ellsberg, author of the book "Secrets: A Memoir of Vietnam and the Pentagon Papers," said: "The only secret Mordechai Vanunu has left to tell the world is the one he revealed on the day of his release from 18 years in prison, April 21, 2004: ’I am a symbol of the will of freedom, that the human spirit is free. You cannot destroy the human spirit.’ That is indeed the most dangerous secret in the eyes not only of Israel but of every state that withholds vital information from its own citizens, including the U.S. and U.K. Israel should let the foremost prophet of the nuclear age go forth to be honored throughout the world — and we call on them to do so — but even if it returns him instead to his 6-by-9 foot cell, Mordechai Vanunu will remain the most free man on earth."

Vanunu’s adoptive American parents, Nick and Mary Eoloff, said after learning of their son’s re-arrest: "We are horrified that today armed Israeli special police forces entered St. George’s Cathedral compound in order to kidnap Mordechai Vanunu for the second time. It is further proof that the security forces have no respect for an individual’s human rights and dignity nor respect for a religious site which is a sacred place of sanctuary. Mordechai has always acted from a moral belief that nuclear weapons are immoral and illegal and that all nations should begin the process of their disarmament."

In 1986, Vanunu was kidnapped, taken back to Israel for a secret trial and convicted on charges of treason and espionage after revealing information about Israel’s secret nuclear arsenal to the London Sunday Times. The restrictions include not being allowed to leave Israel and not being allowed to talk to foreign press, among other things restricting his freedom of movement and speech.

Supporters around the world continue to work for Vanunu’s total freedom, and join him in continuing to call for nuclear abolition in the Middle East and around the world. Fifteen British supporters vigiled at the Israeli Embassy in London on November 11 to immediately protest Vanunu’s arrest.

Felice Cohen-Joppa, coordinator of the U.S. Campaign to Free Mordechai Vanunu said: "It is an outrage that Israel has re-arrested nuclear whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu only six months after his release from prison. The unjust and severe restrictions that have forced Mordechai Vanunu to remain in Israel following his release last April, and intend to muzzle his voice for nuclear disarmament, are grave violations of his human and civil rights. After 18 years in prison, he has no secrets to reveal. Israel must stop punishing this man who has already suffered so much for letting the world know about Israel’s nuclear arsenal."

Rayna Moss, Israeli coordinator for the International Campaign to Free Vanunu, said: "The attempt to silence Mordechai Vanunu on this of all days, is an attempt to bury Israel’s secret nuclear arsenal together with Yasser Arafat. While the world media and attention are focused on the burial of the Palestinian leader, the Israeli government is attempting to disappear the nuclear whistleblower, whose only crime is revealing the terrible truth that Israel is trying to hide: weapons of mass destruction that are concealed from Israeli citizens and from the world."

VANUNU RE-ARRETE ET ASSIGNE A RESIDENCE
12 Novembre 2004

Le lanceur d’alerte Israélien Mordechaï Vanunu a été relâché ce soir de la mise en garde-à-vue à laquelle il était soumis depuis sa dramatique et spectaculaire arrestation ce jeudi matin 11/11 par un commando de 30 policiers armés, à la Cathédrale St George de Jérusalem Est.
Il a encore été puni et placé aux arrêts pour 7 jours. Son téléphone portable lui a été rendu, mais pas son ordinateur.

On lui a signifié qu’il restait soumis aux sévères restrictions imposées par les autorités Israéliennes à sa sortie de prison le 21 avril bien qu’il ait entièrement purgé sa peine de 18 ans. Les raisons de son arrestation sont à l’examen et aucune charge formelle n’a été retenue. Vanunu a été prévenu qu’il pourrait être sanctionné financièrement pour s’être entretenu avec des médias étrangers.

Quand il a été relâché de sa garde-à-vue Vanunu a déclaré à la presse « Une fois, deux fois, trois fois…Combien de fois vais-je être puni pour le même fait ? » Jeudi matin, au moins 30 policiers armés ont fait irruption dans l’enceinte de la Cathédrale St George, terrifiant le prêtre autant que les pèlerins et les invités qui prenaient leur petit déjeuner. Il s’agissait d’une unité spéciale constituée d’officiers en motos et d’autres policiers dans plusieurs véhicules.

Aux infos du soir, un journaliste d’Israël Channel 2 a commenté le raid d’« inutile et embarrassant » et s’est demandé à voix haute pourquoi la police n’avait pas simplement demandé à Vanunu de répondre à ses questions.

Avant qu’il soit libéré, l’opinion générale dans les médias Israéliens était qu’une fois de plus les services de sécurités d’Israël s’étaient surpassés pour que Vanunu fasse la Une des journaux. Après sa libération Vanunu a déclaré à ses amis qu’il allait bien et était heureux de rentrer à St George, mais qu’il resterait un prisonnier tant qu’il serait retenu en Israël contre sa volonté. Il a remercié ses supporters pour leur réponse immédiate à son arrestation.

Daniel Ellsberg, auteur du livre « Secrets : Mémoires du Viêt-Nam et Papiers du Pentagone » a dit : « Le seul secret que Mordechaï Vanunu ait encore à dire au monde est celui qu’il a révélé le jour de sa libération après 18 ans de prison le 21 avril 2004 : « Je suis un symbole de la volonté de liberté, de l’esprit humain qui est libre. On ne peut pas détruire l’esprit humain. » C’est bien là le plus dangereux des secrets aux yeux non seulement d’Israël mais de tout état qui cache des informations vitales à ses propres citoyens, y compris les USA et le Royaume Uni. Israël devrait laisser partir le premier prophète de l’age nucléaire à travers le monde pour qu’il y soit honoré – et nous leur demandons de le faire – mais même s’il advient à la place qu’il retourne à sa cellule de 2m sur 3, Mordechaï Vanunu restera l’homme le plus libre de la Terre. »

Ses parents adoptifs Nick et Mary Eoloff des USA (…) ont déclaré qu’il avait toujours agi avec la conviction morale que les armes nucléaires sont immorales et illégales et que toutes les nations devraient commencer leur processus de désarmement. »

En 1986, Vanunu a été enlevé, ramené en Israël, jugé à huis clos et condamné pour trahison et espionnage après qu’il ait révélé l’existence de l’arsenal nucléaire Israélien au Sunday Times à Londres. Les restrictions auxquelles il reste soumis incluent entre autres l’interdiction de quitter Israël et de parler à des journalistes étrangers.
Des supporters du monde entier continuent à travailler pour la liberté de Mordechaï Vanunu et se joignent à son appel pour l’abolition des armes nucléaires au Moyen Orient et dans le monde. Quinze militants Britanniques se sont immédiatement rassemblés devant l’ambassade d’Israël à Londres le 11 Novembre pour protester contre l’arrestation de Vanunu.

Felice Cohen-Joppa, coordinateur de la campagne pour la libération de Mordechaï Vanunu aux USA a déclaré : « C’est un outrage de la part d’Israël d’avoir re-arrêté le lanceur d’alerte nucléaire Mordechaï Vanunu juste 6 mois après sa libération. Les restrictions injustes et sévères qui obligent Mordechaï Vanunu à rester en Israël depuis sa sortie de prison dans le but d’étouffer son appel au désarment nucléaire, sont de graves violations de ses droits civils et humains. Après 18 ans de prison, il n’a plus de secrets à révéler. Israël doit arrêter de punir cet homme qui a déjà tant souffert pour avoir dévoilé au monde l’existence de l’arsenal nucléaire Israélien. »

Rayna Moss, coordinateur Israélien de la campagne Internationale pour la libération de Mordechaï Vanunu, a déclaré : « La tentative de faire taire Mordechaï Vanunu précisément ce jour là, est une tentative pour enterrer l’arsenal nucléaire secret d’Israël en même temps que Yasser Arafat. Pendant que les médias du monde et l’attention générale sont concentrés sur les funérailles du leader Palestinien, le gouvernement Israélien tente de faire disparaître le lanceur d’alerte, dont le seul crime est d’avoir révélé la terrible vérité qu’Israël essaye de cacher : ses stocks d’armes de destruction massive clandestines.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)
