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 associated with the Taliban:

The detainee, his younger brother and cousin were given 2,500 Saudi Riyals, by their recruiter, to pay for their trip to Afghanistan.


The detainee, after a several day stay at an al Qaida safe house, traveled with six other Arabs and a Yemeni from Jalalabad to Taloqan, Afghanistan in July 2001.


The detainee flew with his brother and cousin to Syria and then to Tehran, Iran then proceeded to another city in Iran in July/August 2001.


The detainee visited the Al Wafa director in Kabul, Afghanistan in 2001.


The detainee's name appears on a hand-written letter associated with al Qaida, recoverd in raids in Pakistan.


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


The detainee's name and alias were found on a document listing mujahideen fighters captured in Pakistan.


The detainee's name, along with other personal information, was found on a list contained in a captured hard drive associated with a senior al Qaeda member.

b. The detainee participated in military operations against the United States and its coalition partners.

The detainee was a Mujahadin fighter at Tora Bora.


The detainee left Kabul, Afghanistan because of the United States air bombardment, traveling to Khost and then to Jalalabad, Afghanistan.


The detainee was arrested by the Pakistani Police after leaving Afghanistan.


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.
