PR NOTES FROM INITIAL INTERVIEW WITH DETAINEE   (Binyam Ahmed Mohammed)[edit]

During the initial interview on 18 Nov 04, detainee elected to NOT to participate in the Tribunal. He had no witnesses or documentary evidence but requested that his Personal Representative provide statements made during the initial interview. Those statements follow:

  • Detainee informed PR that the interrogators told him that the tribunals were a "pass by" to get to the courts. He stated that he had no evidence on him (plans, materials, weapons, etc.) when captured and was interrogated by the British Secret Service (M6) who said that he was not accused of anything. He told me he made statements while being (mentally and physically) tortured while in Pakistani jails. Detainee admitted items 3A1-4 on the UNCLASS summary of evidence, but stated he went for training to fight in Chechnya, which was not illegal. The detainee stated that the other items were rubbish or made under duress. He further stated that he traveled before 11 Sep 2001, which means he had different plans other than going to fight America. After 9/11, there was no way out of AF other than the groups who could get him out of AF, through PK, and back to Britian {{sic} (namely al Qaida). Finally, detainee stated that his plane ticket at time of capture was a ticket from Karachi to Zur4ich to England , so how could he have plans to carry out attacks in the United States.
