Bradley Manning lawyer says case ‘mishandled’ as hearings continue



Bradley Manning lawyer says case ‘mishandled’ as hearings continue 24 Apr 2012 Bradley Manning, the US soldier accused of leaking hundreds of thousands of secret state documents to WikiLeaks, will face his military detractors again on Tuesday at the start of up to three more days of procedural hearings ahead of a full court martial. Manning’s lawyer, David Coombs, has filed several defence motions with the military court in Fort Meade, Maryland, that call for all 22 charges against his client to be dismissed on grounds that the prosecution has mishandled the case. The lawyer will argue that the proceedings have been beset by delays and by refusal to hand over key documents during the discovery process, which he will say is a violation of the military rule book for court martials.
