The BBC Film That Exposed Israel's Secret Illegal Nuclear Weapons (FULL
Mordechai Vanunu, Israel's nuclear whistleblower, was jailed in 1986
for publishing photographs of Israel's nuclear bomb factory at
Dimona. Olenka Frenkiel reveals the extent of Israel's nuclear
gagging. The Sunday Times Revelations hit the press in October 1986.
Vanunu has spent 17 years in jail, a11 of which were in a minute
solitary confinement cell - and he has just had his appeal for
parole denied. He will stay in jail until 2004, when his term is
expected to end.
Sunday Times journalist Peter Hounam heard rumours in 1986 that an
Israeli whistleblower was offering proof of what the world had long
suspected. His revelations confirmed that Israel was building
advanced nuclear weapons. After the Sunday Times published this
scoop, Vanunu was kidnapped in London by Mossad agents and illegally
smuggled back to Israel. He was tried in secret and convicted of
treason and spying.
