Subject: Summary of Evidence for Combatant Status Review Tribunal - Dawut Abdurehim


Under the provisions of the Secretary of the Navy Memorandum, dated 29 July 2004, Implementation of Combatant Status Review Tribunal Procedures for Enemy Combatants Detained at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base Cuba, a Tribunal has been appointed to review the detainee's designation as an enemy combatant.


An enemy combatant has been defined as "an individual who was part of or supporting the Taliban or al Qaida forces, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners. This included any person who committed a belligerent act or has directly supported hostilities in aid of enemy armed forces."


The United States Government has previously determined that the detainee is an enemy combatant. This determination is based on information possessed by the United States that indicates that he is a member of the Taliban.

a. The detainee is associated with al Qaida and the Taliban:

The detainee is ############# who traveled to Afghanistan, via Kyrgyzstan and Pakistan, to receive military training at a military training camp in the Tora Bora mountains.


The detainee lived at the Uighur training camp from June to October 2001.


The training camp was provided to the Uighers by the Taliban.


The East Turkistan Islamic Movement (ETIM} operated facilities in the Tora Bora region of Afghanistan in which Uighur expatriates underwent small arms training. These camps were funded by bin Laden and the Taliban


ETIM is listed on the state departments terrorist exclusion list.


While at the camp, the detainee received training on the Kalashnikov rifle, handguns, and other weapons.


Following the destruction of the training camp by the United States bombing campaign, the detainee traveled to a village in Pakistan where he was captured.

The Tribunal will endeavor to arrange for the presence of any reasonably available witnesses or evidence that the detainee desires to call or introduce to prove that he is not an enemy combatant. The Tribunal President will determine the reasonable availability of availability of evidence or witnesses.
