Summary of Evidence for Combatant Status Review Tribunal - AL BIDNA, Sa'ad Ad Ibraham Sa'ad.

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 includes 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 the detainee is associated with al Qaida.

The detainee is associated with al Qaida:
  1. The detainee traveled from his home in Saudi Arabia to Iran via Syria in July 2001.
  2. The detainee associated with a Saudi providing relief to a refugee organization.
  3. The Saudi is a known operative for al Wafa
  4. Al Wafa is a terrorist organization.
  5. The same Saudi facilitated the detainee's illegal entry into Pakistan.
  6. Pakistani officials arrested the detainee late November or early December 2001.
  7. The detainee admitted to being a terrorist.
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 evidence or witnesses. }}
