[Jim Anderson, US Crime Contributor]

According to BBC News, British Wikileaks suspect, Bradley Manning, is to be moved for his ‘own well-being’ to a military prison in Kansas. He is currently being held at a Marine Corps base in Virginia, pending his trial for disclosing US military secrets, where, his supporters and international observers say  he is being mistreated.

Last week, US officials had blocked requests by the UN’s special rapporteur on torture for an ‘unmonitored’ visit to Bradley Manning at the prison to investigate concerns about his mistreatment.
