Chelsea Manning faces indefinite solitary confinement after suicide attempt

Whistleblower Chelsea Manning, who is serving a 35-year sentence for disclosing US secrets, is now being investigated on charges related to her July 5 suicide attempt at Fort Leavenworth prison. If convicted, she faces indefinite solitary confinement.

On Thursday, Manning received an Army charge sheet informing her that she is under investigation for “resisting the forcecell move team,” “prohibited property,” and “conduct which threatens [life],” the document released by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) reads.

Manning was rushed to the hospital on July 5, following a suicide attempt. The following week, Manning confirmed through an attorney statement that she had attempted to end her own life.
