PRESS RELEASE
Index on Censorship condemns verdicts in Bradley Manning case
30 Jul 2013
BY INDEX ON CENSORSHIP

Free speech organisation Index on Censorship condemns the guilty verdicts in the trial of Bradley Manning.  However,  we welcome the verdict of not guilty to the charge of aiding the enemy.

Index Editor, Online and News, Sean Gallagher said:

‘Manning is a whistleblower who leaked files in order to inform the world about what really happened during the Iraq War to no personal gain. Index condemns this verdict and calls on the US government to abide by its duty to protect whistleblowers who speak out in the public interest. We urge the court to show leniency when sentencing Manning tomorrow.’

    War criminals—not truth-telling whistleblowers—deserve to be indicted.
