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 at Qaeda forces, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners. This includes 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 the detainee is associated with al Qaida and the Taliban and also participated in military operations against the tJnited States and its coalition partners.

  1. The detainee traveled from Saudi Arabia to Afghanistan after September 11, 2001.

  5. The detainee is on a watch list for facilitating travel for Saudis willing to go to Afghanistan through Iran by providing fake passports to those unable to get one.

b. The detainee participated in military operations against the United States and its coalition partners.
  1. An aircraft bomb wounded the detainee.

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

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