COMBATANT STATUS REVIEW BOARD


To: Personal Representative
From: OIC, CSRT (1 October 2004)
Subject: Summary of Evidence for Combatant Status Review Tribunal [ (b)(6) ]


1.

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.

2.

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."

3.

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 associated with al Qaida:

a. The detainee is associated with al Qaida:
1.

The detainee traveled to Afghanistan from Saudi Arabia in approximately August of 2001.

2.

The detainee received training at a terrorist training camp in Afghanistan.

3.

The detainee's name was included in a computer file recovered from an al Qaida safehouse in Islamabad that listed prisoners currently incarcerated in Pakistan.

4.

The detainee's name was found in a document recovered from an al Qaida safehouse in Karachi.

5.

The detainee's name was listed as al Qaida Mujahidin who had not yet completed training in a document recovered from an al Qaida safehouse in Rawalpindi, Pakistan.

6.

One of the detainee's known aliases was on a list of captured al Qaida members that was discovered on a computer hard drive associated with a senior al Qaida member.

4.

The detainee has the opportunity to contest his designation as an enemy combatant. 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.
