Chelsea Manning was released from prison, two months after been jailed for contempt of court for refusing to reveal the details of the Wikileaks case to the grand jury. Manning was released from Alexandria Detention Center, Virginia, on May 9ty. The announcement came from Manning’s Twitter account. “Today marked the expiration of the term of the grand jury, and so, after 62 days of confinement, Chelsea was released from the Alexandria Detention Center earlier today,” her lawyers told BBC, adding that the ordeal goes on, and Manning will be forced to speak out in front of a different jury tomorrow (May 16) where she is expected to be asked the same questions she refused to answer in March, which led to her recent incarceration. “Chelsea will continue to refuse to answer questions, and will use every available legal defense to prove… that she has just cause for her refusal to give testimony,” the lawyers said.
