Chelsea Manning has been denied entry into Canada, according to a letter she recently posted to Twitter.

According to the letter Manning received from the Canadian government, she was “inadmissible on grounds of serious criminality for having been convicted of an offense outside Canada,” the letter reads.

The letter further describes Canada’s decision to bar Manning by comparing the offense she was convicted of in the U.S.

“If committed in Canada this offense would equate to an indictable offense, namely Treason described under section 46(2)(B) of the Criminal Code of Canada,” the letter states.
