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 a member of the Taliban.

a. The detainee is a member of the Taliban:

The detainee served as the                 for the Taliban Government from 1996 until the collapse of the Taliban in 2001.


The detainee was captured on 01 April 2003 by soldiers of the Afghan Military Forces (AMF) near Zamtu in the Ganda Ab Region. He was turned over to United States Forces later that same day.


When captured by AMF soldiers, the detainee was in possession of a Kalashnikov rifle.


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.
