The move came after defense officials realized that some of the restrictions were legally untenable. Thus, the ban on discussing his abduction was lifted. The ban on going near embassies was also altered; Vanunu was told that he could go near them, but not enter them.
Interior Minister Avraham Poraz signed an injunction yesterday prohibiting Vanunu from leaving Israel for one year. Other restrictions imposed on him by the defense establishment will remain in effect for six months. Defense sources said the main reason for preventing Vanunu from leaving the country and not issuing him a passport was that he still knows state secrets that may jeopardize state security.
The Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI), which represents Vanunu, intends to petition the High Court of Justice against the restrictions, after Vanunu's request to revoke them were rejected.
Vanunu may not give anyone any classified information obtained while he was working in the Dimona nuclear facility or discuss issues related to his former workplace, even if he has released that information before (to the Sunday Times).
Vanunu must notify the authorities of his address in the Dan region and advise the police 24 hours in advance if he wants to sleep at another address. He must not be within 500 meters of border crossings, or partake in Internet chats unless permitted.
