Manning’s final sentence will be reduced due to inhumane confinement Maryland – Arabstoday Prosecutors must prove that US Army Private Bradley Manning knew he was aiding the enemy when he turned over documents to Wikileaks, a military judge ruled.Army Colonel Denise Lind, who is overseeing Manning's pretrial hearings at Fort Meade, Maryland, also said in her ruling on Wednesday that Manning's defence can present evidence that the former intelligence analyst chose to leak documents that would not harm national security, The Washington Post reported.
A court-martial is scheduled for June for the 25-year-old Manning, charged with leaking sensitive government cables and other documents to the whistleblowing website WikiLeaks, which published them on its website and shared them with media outlets across the world.
Because of Lind's ruling, damage assessments by intelligence agencies after WikiLeaks released the hundreds of thousands of documents will not be admitted into evidence by either side during the court-martial.
Among the charges filed against Manning is aiding the enemy.
Prosecutors had indicated they plan to offer evidence recovered from al-Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden's compound that proves he asked for and obtained access to some of the WikiLeaks material Manning allegedly leaked.
Manning was arrested in May 2010 in Iraq and eventually transferred to the military jail at Quantico, Virginia. During his confinement, Manning was held in solitary confinement and denied clothing on occasion. Lind recently ruled that any sentence he receives should be reduced by 112 days because of the conditions of his confinement.
Manning's lawyer, David Coombs, said on Wednesday that his witness testimony is likely to be less reliable because of the time that has passed since the alleged offenses.
"It is just common sense, witnesses will say: 'It has been several years, I don't recall,'" Coombs said.
