Israeli nuclear whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu arrested

Published 30/12/2009

Nuclear whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu has been arrested for violating a ban on contact with foreigners.

His lawyer said he was detained over a romance with a Norwegian woman rather than for revealing nuclear secrets.

“She is not interested in nuclear business,” his attorney, Avigdor Feldman, told reporters.

“She's interested in [him... and he] is probably interested in her.”

A Jerusalem court ordered that Mr Vanunu, who was taken into police custody on Monday, be put under house arrest for three days pending an indictment.
