COMBATANT STATUS REVIEW BOARD


To: Personal Representative
From: OIC, CSRT (21 November 2004)
Subject: Summary of Evidence for Combatant Status Review Tribunal [ (b)(6) ]


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 included 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 he is a member of the Taliban and al Qaida:

a. The detainee is a member of the Taliban and al Qaida:
1.

Detainee was possibly identified as an al Qaida associate, planning landmine attacks in Khowst, Afghanistan.

2.

Detainee was possibly identified as a person likely to have communicated with Arab al Qaida members operating in Peshawar, Afghanistan, and working directly for Arab al Qaida in the Knowst province.

3.

The detainee recruited others to lay mines that would harm American and Afghan forces.

4.

The detainee offered to pay others to lay mines that would harm American and Afghan forces.

5.

The detainee was arrested by the Pakistani Police authorities on 13 August 2002 at the Khurgi, Pakistan checkpoint. In the detainee's possession was a Thuraya Satellite telephone, 2,700 United States Dollars, 3,600 Pakistan Rupees, and 70,000 Afghan Rupees.

6.

The detainee's name appears on a typed e-mail on al Qaida associated computer media recovered during raids in Pakistan.

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 availability of evidence or witnesses.
