Office of rapporteur on torture confirms it is looking into complaint made by Manning supporter 23 Dec 2010 The United Nations is investigating a complaint on behalf of Bradley Manning that he is being mistreated while held since May in US Marine Corps custody pending trial. The army private is charged with the unauthorised use and disclosure of classified information, material related to the WikiLeaks, and faces a court martial sometime in 2011. The office of Manfred Nowak, special rapporteur on torture based in Geneva, received the complaint from a Manning supporter; his office confirmed that it was being looked into. Manning's supporters say that he is in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day; this could be construed as a form of torture.

This is good news. If what his friends are saying about his treatment is accurate, it could well be considered torture. The fact that they know the UN is going to be looking into this might mean he gets improved conditions from now.

Someone needs to check on the political prisoner.
The guy has not been convicted for anything, but is currently being treated on US soil in the same way that the absolute worse violent convict is treated (which in itself is a human rights violation)
