Israeli prosecutors charged nuclear whistle-blower Mordechai Vanunu on Sunday with violating the terms of his release, more than a decade after he completed an 18-year jail term, the justice ministry said.

Upon his release in 2004, Mr Vanunu was made subject to a series of restraining orders, some of which he has violated in recent years, the indictment read.

According to the charge sheet, Mr Vanunu in 2013 met two American nationals in Jerusalem without having permission to do so.

In 2014 he moved to a different flat in his apartment building and failed to inform police.

And in 2015, he granted an interview to Channel 2 television, in which he relayed to the interviewer “classified information that was by cut out by censors”, read the indictment served at Jerusalem magistrates’ court.
