Israeli nuclear whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu was indicted Thursday for violating the terms of his release from prison, the Israeli Justice Ministry said.

Vanunu was freed from an Israeli prison in April after completing an 18-year sentence for revealing secrets of Israel’s atomic program to the Sunday Times newspaper in London.

Under the terms of his release, the former technician at the Israeli nuclear facility in the Negev desert town of Dimona was barred from leaving Israeli territory and contacting foreigners.

Since his release from prison, Vanunu has been living at a Jerusalem church compound.
