Prof. on Manning’s Arrest: Revenge Move Against Anyone Who Challenges Washington

US whistleblower Chelsea Manning was detained on Friday after a federal judge found her to be in contempt of court as she rejected to respond to the 2010 WikiLeaks case-related questions before a secret grand jury.

“The latest arrest of citizen Chelsea Manning demonstrates the attitudes inherent in a culture of revenge which advocates moves against anyone who dares to challenge US Establishment interests," Professor Stuart Rees, the director of the Sydney Peace Foundation and an Australian academic, human rights activist, and author, told Sputnik in a written interview.

Slamming what he described as the “invisible deliberations” of US grand juries to punish dissenters, he pointed the finger at America’s “alleged rules of law” and warned that “there may be no legal justification for the latest action against Chelsea Manning”.
