Manning to speak near end of sentencing case
FORT MEADE, Maryland (AP) - United States (US) soldier Bradley Manning will make a rare statement before his defence finishes arguments in his sentencing hearing next week, his lawyers said on Friday.
The 25-year-old faces up to 90 years in prison for the largest leak of classified government information in US history.
Manning did not make a statement at his trial.
Defence attorney David Coombs said Manning will give a statement on Wednesday. The defence team is set to begin presenting evidence on Monday.
