Australia will not allow Chelsea Manning, who was convicted of leaking classified information, to enter the country on her speaking tour, Manning’s event organizer told the Associated Press Thursday.

Think Inc. told AP that the Australian government on Wednesday notified the company that Manning would not be allowed into the country.

According to the report, Manning can appeal the decision, but past precedent suggests that the decision will not be overturned.

The article goes on to state the following:

Manning was convicted of leaking military and diplomatic documents to WikiLeaks while working as an Army intelligence analyst. President Obama granted her clemency seven years into her 35-year sentence.

Manning, a transgender activist and former candidate for Senate in Maryland, was scheduled to begin her speaking tour at the Sydney Opera House Sunday, continuing on to other events in Australia and New Zealand.

The Depart of Home Affairs told AP it could not comment on individual cases, but that all foreign nationals attempting to enter Australia must meet the Migration Act’s character standards.

  1. smart country!! Once Mr Manning decided to leak information on our country, he became a criminal and should have had to serve his whole 35 year sentence!!! He should not even be allowed in this country much less anyone else’s country!!! He should never be allowed to have any other electronic device in his possession. Not even so much as a cell phone. I hope no one else ever gives him 2 seconds of speaking time. He should have to get a regular job and earn his living like the rest of the common people. But he should never be allowed to work in electronics!!!
