The Associated Press is reporting that the U.N. will investigate complaints from a “supporter” of accused WikiLeaks traitor, US Army PFC Bradley Manning, that he has been “mistreated in custody” at the brig located aboard the Marine Corps base in Quantico, VA.
Manfred Nowak, who sports the impressive moniker of ‘special rapporteur on torture’ for the UN, received a complaint from one of Manning’s supporters alleging conditions at the brig amount to torture.
According to the AP, visitors say Manning spends at least 23 hours a day alone in a cell.
A Marine Corps spokesman says the military is keeping Manning safe, secure and ready for trial.
Manning was charged in July with leaking more than 250,000 secret U.S. State Department cables. Many of those documents include the names of Afghans who have secretly worked with the United States military against both the Taliban and al-Qaeda.
Many claim that Manning’s information dump could lead to the assassination of those named, to include that named individuals families, as well as the deaths of American troops currently fighting Islamo-Terrorism world-wide.
Don’t Indict me, bro!
Meanwhile, in an interview with MSNBC yesterday, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange stated that Manning is a “political prisoner”, and went on to say that he is calling on human-rights organizations to investigate.
Assange is currently on bail in England, where he is fighting extradition to Sweden where he is facing sex crimes, to include rape, sexual molestation and forceful coercion.
