Private Bradley Manning

Bradley Manning was accused of leaking classified, sensitive material to wikiLeaks. He was arrested June 2010. Bradley Manning suffered for many months pause-less inhumane, personality-erasing, soul-destroying, insanity-inducing conditions of isolation similar to those perfected at Supermax prison in Florence, Colorado, USA: all without being convicted of anything.

Bradley Manning is entirely naked since March 2, 2011, according to a US Marine spokesman. Rumours accuse the USA of mistreatment to enforce a confession to plea guilty.

Bradley Manning is detained in the U.S. Marine brig in Quantico, Virginia.

A UN torture investigator says he is frustrated at being refused an unmonitored visit to the US Army private. Juan Mendez said the US Government "has not been receptive to a confidential meeting" with Private Bradley Manning. He said in a statement that a monitored conversation would be counter to the practice of his UN mandate.
Under a monitored conversation, anything said by Manning may be used against him in a military trial. April 12, 2011.

Bradley Manning has been moved to a prison in Leavenworth, Kansas, at April 21, 2011. The defence of Bradley Manning was in the process of filing a writ of habeas corpus seeking a court ruling that the Quantico Brig violated PFC Manning’s constitutional right to due process. See United States ex. rel. Accardi v. Shaughnessy, 74 S.Ct. 499 (1954) (violation of due process where result of board proceeding was predetermined); United States v. Anderson, 49 M.J. 575 (N.M. Ct. Crim. App. 1998) (illegal punishment where Marine Corps had an unwritten policy automatically placing certain detainees in max custody).
