The former army intelligence analyst, Chelsea Manning tried to take her own life in a Virginia prison on Wednesday for a looming date in court, her legal team said in a statement.

She is still recovering and is expected to appear in court for a hearing on Friday after refusing to testify before a grand jury in the WikiLeaks probe, the lawyers said.

Manning was re-arrested in May for failure to comply with the writ of summons to the witnesses and after serving for two months for the same problem.

A judge is set to rule Friday on a motion for the dissolution of a civil contempt sanctions arising out of her refusal.

She told the court in May, she would “rather die” than it is to comply with the subpoena.

“In spite of the sanctions — that is, so far, spanned more than a year, the so-called ‘coercive’ imprisonment, and for nearly a half-million dollars in fines and penalties being threatened — that they will remain steadfast in its refusal to take part in a secret grand jury process, which she sees as being very prone to abuse,” the legal team wrote in a statement.
