Chelsea Manning jailed for refusing to testify in inquiry into Julian Assange and WikiLeaks

Chelsea Manning, who was jailed in 2013 for leaking US military secrets to WikiLeaks, was arrested again on Friday for refusing to testify in a grand jury investigation targeting the anti-secrecy group, her supporters said.

“Chelsea Manning has been remanded into federal custody for her refusal to provide testimony” to a grand jury in Arlington, Virginia, said a statement from The Sparrow Project.

They cited the judge in the case, Claude Hilton, as saying Manning would be held indefinitely “until she purges or the end of the life of the grand jury.”
