Nearly 30 years ago I carried out an act I thought it was my duty to do. In closed judicial proceedings a court sentenced me to 18 years imprisonment, which I served in full, including 11 years in isolation. Since my release from prison in April 2004 the ISA has imposed on me restrictions that prevent me from living as a free man. The ISA’s claim that I possess information is groundless. All I knew I gave to the newspaper, and nuclear scientists who questioned me confirm it. The restrictions, including a ban on leaving the country, which are renewed every year, are nothing but revenge against me because I have not apologized. My mission ended the day the newspaper published the information. A few months ago I married my wife, a theology professor at the University of Oslo, and my sole objective now is to live a quiet family life in that quiet city. I hope that the judges who consider the appeal at the end of October will grant my request.
