WikiLeaks Suspect Forced to Sleep Naked in Brig

Friday, 04 Mar 2011 08:59 AM

 

WASHINGTON — The lawyer for an Army private suspected of giving classified material to WikiLeaks says it's inexcusable that that his client was forced to sleep naked in his cell at a Marine Corps brig in Quantico, Va.

The Marines confirmed Friday that Pfc. Bradley Manning was made to relinquish his boxer shorts for about seven hours Wednesday night due to what 1st Lt. Brian Villiard calls a "situationally driven" event.

Villiard wouldn't elaborate, citing concerns about Manning's privacy.

Defense attorney David Coombs says the conditions of Manning's pretrial confinement are punitive and violate military rules.

The former intelligence analyst is charged with aiding the enemy and other offenses for allegedly leaking classified information.
