Former US Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning said in a statement on Monday she is prepared to stay in jail rather than testify against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange after a US federal appeal court rejected her appeal. Manning is likely to pursue further appeals.

"I don't have anything to contribute to this, or any other grand jury", Manning added.

It was unclear why the grand jury still needs Manning a year after Assange was indicted under seal for conspiracy connected to Manning's leaks. The panel also rejected Manning's bid to be let out of jail while she fights the subpoena. The grand jury activity was apparently the latest dust-up from the Justice Department connected to Assange and came weeks before Assange was arrested in London.

The ruling came 11 days after the federal court in Alexandria, Virginia unsealed charges against Assange related to his publishing in 2010 hundreds of thousands of secret United States war and diplomacy documents and communications that were stolen by Manning.

It is not clear if the alleged collaboration between Manning and Assange led to a successful intrusion into any US government computer.

Sri Lanka failed to heed warnings of attacks, official says

Prosecutors have called Manning's leak to Wikileaks one of the largest compromises of classified information in USA history.

In the past two years, the U.S. government has sought to build a case against Assange over his publication of a series of leaks of highly sensitive USA intelligence, military and diplomatic materials.

Manning served seven years in a military prison for leaking a trove of military and diplomatic documents to Wikileaks before then-President Barack Obama commuted the remainder of her 35-year sentence.

Manning was subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury in the Eastern District of Virginia and refused to do so. She can still appeal to the full Fourth Circuit or Supreme Court.
