Imprisonment of conscientious objector Yahel Avigur
Dear Mr Shaul Mofaz, Minister of Defence
I am very concerned about the imprisonment of conscientious objector Yahel Avigur.
Yahel Avigur, a pacifist conscientious objector, was sentenced on 16 April to 28 days in military prison. This is already his third prison term, as he spent 14 days in prison in late October and early November 2004, and a second term in March 2005.
Yahel Avigur had appeared before the Conscience Committee after his first prison term, but has been rejected, although no formal notification has been given to him so far.
