Virginia Judge Hilton puts Chelsea Manning Behind Bars for Not Testifying in Wikileaks Probe
March 9 , 2019
US District Judge Claude Hilton has ordered police to take ex-US intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning into custody after Manning refused to testify before an investigation into Wikileaks. The Virginia judge has ordered the custody till she either decides to testify on the matter or the jury’s work gets finished. However, the 31-year old former US intelligence analyst insists that she has already shared everything at the time of her court-martial. During the hearing, she went on to tell the US District Judge that she’ll not testify on Wikileaks and asked him to bring anything upon her, which she will gladly accept. In a statement, Manning said “I will not comply with this, or any other grand jury” as she has ethical objections to the grand jury system.
