USA: Open letter to Robert Gates, Secretary of Defense
In this open letter Amnesty International expresses its express concern about the conditions under which Private First Class (PFC) Bradley Manning is detained at the Quantico Marine Corps Base in Virginia. The organization understands that PFC Manning’s restrictive conditions of confinement are due to his classification as a maximum custody detainee and that he is also being held under a Prevention of Injury (POI) assignment: no formal reasons have been provided to PFC Manning for either his maximum security classification or the POI assignment.
