Bradley Manning's Attorney David Coombs Speaks Publicly - 12/3/2012

The attorney representing Bradley Manning, the U.S. Army private accused of releasing military reports to WikiLeaks, made his first public speaking appearance on Monday.

Army PFC Bradley Manning's civilian defense lawyer, David Coombs, spoke to an audience in Washington D.C. on the alleged "unlawful pretrial punishment" that PFC Manning was subjected to for nine months while at the Marine Corps Base, Quantico, Virginia. He also provided an overview of the defense motions before the court and other facts regarding the U.S. v. Manning case.

The event follows a major pretrial hearing for Manning at Fort Meade, MD, from November 27 to December 2. At last week's pretrial hearing, Coombs moved to dismiss all charges with prejudice based on Manning's treatment. The government’s alleged denial of PFC Manning’s right to a speedy trial is also before the military court.

The event was hosted by the Bradley Manning Support Network, which is responsible for Manning’s legal defense expenses.
