To: Personal Representative
From: OIC, CSRT (November 10 2004)
Subject: Summary of Evidence for Combatant Status Review Tribunal [ (b)(6) ]


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 associated with an al Qaida and the Taliban.

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

The detainee left Afghanistan on 18 May 2000, via the Karachi-Quetta-Qandahar route using a passport obtained from an al Qaida facilitator.


The detainee served as a driver for the al Qaida facilitator.


The detainee completed a 45-day military-basic-training course at a terrorist training camp.


The detainee swore bayat to Usama Bin Laden.


The detainee served as a bodyguard for Usama Bin Laden between August 2000 and February 2001.


The detainee stated that he was honored to be a bodyguard for Usama Bin Laden.


The detainee was a participant in several operational meetings with a senior al Qaida official in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, during March 2002.


The detainee received money to purchase a truck in order to transport explosives from Yemen to Saudi Arabia in the middle of July 2002.


The detainee received 100,000 Riyals (SAR) to cover upcoming expenditures of the Port Rashid operation (1 USD Equals 3.75).


The detainee accompanied an al Qaida operative to the Umm al Qayawin flying club close to Dubai, United Arab Emirates (The Umm al Quyawin Flying Club is also referred to as the Dubai Flying Club).


The detainee while flying with an al Qaida operative took aerial photographs of the al Sharka Airport.

b. The detainee participated in military operations against the United States and its coalition partners.
1. The detainee left Kandahar, and after a 30-minute drive returned to Kandahar to rejoin the fight.
2. The detainee and his family stayed at an al Qaida safe house during their egress from Afghanistan to Pakistan.

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.
