Conscientious objectors Avichai Vaknin and Sahar Vardi

Dear Ehud Barak,

I am very concerned about the imprisonment of conscientious objectors Avichai Vakin, who was sentenced on 21 August to 21 days, and Sahar Vardi, who was sentenced on 25 August to 7 days. Avichai Vaknin is now serving his sentence in Military Prison No 6, and Sahar Vardi is serving hers in Military Prison No. 400. For both it is highly likely that they will receive a new prison term after serving the present sentence.

ISRAEL: Conscientious objectors Avichai Vaknin and Sahar Vardi

Country:
  • Israel
Alert:

After conscientious objector Udi Nir went to military prison for 21 days on 21 August 2008, two more conscientious objectors are now in prison.

Avichai Vaknin (ISR14948), a 18 years old pacifist conscientious objector from Yehud, near Tel Aviv, has been sentenced to 21 days in prison on the same day as Udi Nir, and received the same sentence of 21 days.
