Wikileaks and the CCR file suit against the US military

by Eva Blum-Dumontet

Today, Wikileaks announced in a tweet they will file a suit with the Center for Constitutional Rights against the US military regarding the Bradley Manning case.

The Center for Constitutional Rights has acted as a legal counsel for both Wikileaks and Julian Assange. They often emphasized the ties between Bradley Manning’s military trial in Fort Meade and fought, for instance, to obtain the right to send the Wikileaks legal team to Manning’s hearings.

They published in February a statement condemning the sealed indictment refered to in the Stratfor emails. The CCR often made use of materials released by Wikileaks, and more particularly on their work concerning Guantanamo.
