Further to yesterday's news that US military whistleblower Chelsea Manning had been hospitalized and cut off from her lawyers and family, a statement from her legal team.
Chelsea Manning was reported to have been hospitalized earlier this week. This morning, Chelsea's appellate lawyer Nancy Hollander released the following statement:
The prison has notified us that Chelsea was hospitalized and remains under a doctor's care. At this time her doctors are recommending against a call and we are respecting those recommendations but are in close touch with the facility and will continue to monitor her condition and hope to connect with her soon. To protect her privacy, that is all we can say at the moment. Please continue to send Chelsea your good thoughts and messages of support.
