Judge: Wikileaks Mole Manning Received ‘Illegal Pretrial Punishment’

Bradley Manning, Military Prison, Pre-Trial Punishment, Cuts Sentence, Wikileaks, Julian Assange.

The Wikileaks informant in the U.S. military, Bradley Manning, has been found to have been mistreated while he was a prisoner — being held naked in a 6-by-8 cell in Quantico, Virginia, CBS reports. The counter-argument from prison guards at the Marine Brig was that they believed Manning to be a suicide risk.

A judge ruled today that 112 days will be removed from any sentence the former Private First Class receives. Manning’s trial will begin on March 6.

Manning was seeking to have all of his charges expunged due to his mistreatment.

Manning was arrested in 2010 for allegedly sending Army classified documents to Wikileaks regarding Baghdad airstrikes, including an errant strike on a Reuters cameraman.
