You’ll Never Guess Which Country Granted Leaker Manning Entry For A Speaking Tour
According to Fox News, Stuart said the agency noted that Manning’s sentence had been commuted by President Barack Obama in 2017, that she had not reoffended since being released, and that the chances of her offending while in New Zealand were low.
New Zealand’s conservative opposition National Party had urged the government to ban Manning, saying her appearance would not enhance New Zealand’s relationship with the U.S.
Australia has similar good-character rules to New Zealand. Manning’s tour was due to start in Sydney on Sunday, but on Thursday event organizer Think Inc. said it had received a notice of intention from the Australian government to deny Manning entry.
The group was calling on her supporters to lobby new Immigration Minister David Coleman to allow her into Australia. While Manning can appeal, past precedent suggests the decision has already been made.
The Australian government sent Manning’s team a notice of intention to deny the convicted leaker’s entry, said Think Inc. who is organizing the event. The organizers said they gave the government more than 10 letters of support from individuals and organizers who support Manning’s visit to Australia.
Australia isn’t the only country disgusted with Manning’s past and criminal conviction. Just last year Canada gave Manning a big fat NO when she tried to enter their country. Which seemed pretty shocking at the time given the Canadian Government’s progressive stance.
Back in 2013 the then Bradley Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison for providing more than 700,000 government files to WikiLeaks, a gigantic leak that “lifted the veil on American military and diplomatic activities around the world.”
It was supposed to be the longest sentence handed down for leaking classified documents but Obama granted Manning clemency and released the convicted criminal.
