Bradley Manning is a US soldier, imprisoned on suspicion of having released secret documents to WikiLeaks. Manning has suffered ‘unduly harsh’ conditions since he was brought from Kuwait to a military prison in Virginia more than a year ago. For a period of his imprisonment he was stripped naked every night, had his prescription glasses taken away, forcing him to sit in ‘essential blindness’ and was subjected to other severe punishments. His treatment led to an investigation by the UN and protests to the US government from Amnesty International.
