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 he is a member of al-Qaida. He engaged in hostilities against the United States and its coalition partners.

  1. Detainee went to the battlefield to help fight the Northern Alliance.
  2. The detainee constructed two circuit boards for explosive devices intended to be used against US Military Forces.

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

The Tribunal President will determine the reasonable availability of availability of evidence or witnesses.
