RawStory . Amnesty International condemns ‘inhumane’ treatment of Bradley Manning
The international human rights group Amnesty International has sent a letter to US Defence Secretary Robert Gates calling for the « inhumane » conditions of US army private Bradley Manning to be reviewed.
Twenty-three year old Manning, who is accused of leaking information to WikiLeaks, has been held in a solitary cell for 23 hours a day and deprived of a pillow, sheets, and personal possessions since July 2010. He has been classified as a « maximum custody » detainee, which requires him to be shackled at the hands and legs during all visits, despite having no history of violence.
« We are concerned that the conditions inflicted on Bradley Manning are unnecessarily severe and amount to inhumane treatment by the US authorities, » Susan Lee, Amnesty International’s Programme Director for the Americas, said in a media advisory.
Psychologists for Social Responsibility (PsySR) has also sent a letter to the defense secretary, asking him to « rectify the inhumane, harmful, and counterproductive treatment » of the Army private.
