The ex-hacker who reported WikiLeaker Bradley Manning to US authorities is scheduled to meet with military prosecutors next week, Wired.com reported Tuesday.

“I'm finally going to meet with the JAG officer to go over the preliminaries for the actual testimony and how they want to play out my role,” Adrian Lamo was quoted as saying, referring to the Judge Advocate General, which prosecutes military personnel under courts martial. “It's the first time I've met with them.”

Manning, 23, stands accused accused of downloading hundreds of thousands of confidential documents while he was a US Army intelligence analyst stationed in Iraq and giving them to WikiLeaks. One of the charges filed against him – aiding the enemy – carries the potential for Manning to be sentenced to death.

He was seized in May and charged in July after telling Lamo during a series of online chats that he was responsible for leaking huge amounts of classified material, including the “Collateral Murder” published on WikiLeaks, Wired.com said.

The US government has reportedly convened a grand jury that is building a case against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Lamo has not testified or been subpoenaed in that probe, Wired.com reported. ®
