UNCLASSIFIED COMBATANT STATUS REVIEW BOARD


To: Personal Representative
From: OIC, CSRT (25 October 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 associated with the Taliban and al Qaida:

a. The detainee is associated with the Taliban and al Qaida:
1.

The detainee arrived in Afghanistan from Yemen, via Pakistan.

2.

The detainee claims to be Red Crescent volunteer, but cannot provide much information on city layout or known associates.

3.

The detainee was captured near the border of Pakistan while crossing from Afghanistan.

4.

The detainee was captured while in possession of a Casio watch model that has been used in bombings linked to al Qaida and radical Islamic terrorist groups with improvised explosive devices.

5.

The detainee stayed at several Taliban safehouses.

6.

The detainee's name appears on a list recovered from an al Qaida safehouse.

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.
