Presentation by WikiLeaks whistleblower PFC Bradley Manning’s attorney David Coombs

PFC Bradley Manning’s civilian defense lawyer David Coombs will make his first ever public appearance to provide an overview of pending defense motions before the court and other facts regarding U.S. v. Manning. Mr. Coombs is expected to focus on the unlawful pretrial punishment PFC Manning was subjected to for nine months while at the Marine Corps Base, Quantico, Virginia–the subject of international outrage and a UN investigation. The Government’s denial of PFC Manning’s right to a speedy trial will also be before the military court. Accused military whistle-blower and Nobel Peace Prize nominee PFC Manning has been in prison for over 900 days. PFC Manning’s court martial is currently scheduled to begin February 4, 2013
