documents

On April 20th and May 15th of 2006 the United States Department of Defense published their first two official lists of captives names.

In September 2007 the Department of Defense published 2300 documents from the captives' Combatant Status Review Tribunals, and Administrative Review Board hearings. The DoD published four additional official lists of captives that listed captive 189.

The DoD also published the Summary of Evidence memos from captive 189's CSR Tribunal, and his first two annual Review Board hearings.

The DoD spelled captive 189's name inconsistently on these documents, calling him Radfat Muhammad Faqi Alji Saqqaf on the Summary of Evidence prepared for his 2006 review.

Findings

Note: All looks in order. There's credible-sounding evidence against the detainee and no sign of mistreatment. The only question mark might be Ghereby's absence from the hearing, but I don't think that's a big item.

Summary: On September 27, 2004, Salem Abdu Salem Ghereby of Libya was found to be "properly designated as an enemy combatant" following a hearing by the Combatant Status Review Tribunal at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The tribunal cited credible evidence that Ghereby was an Al Qaida member and had been an Al Qaida operative in Kabul until his capture by Pakistani forces in November 2001. Ghereby was not present at the hearing, having refused to cooperate in a 10 minute pre-tribunal interview the previous day, during which he recited verses from the Koran, acknowledged neither his Personal Representative nor his Translator, and answered no questions.

The PR interpreted Ghereby's negative response as a deliberate choice not to participate in the CSRT. Proceeding without him, the tribunal called no witnesses, requested no additional evidence be produced, and reached a unanimous decision. The case is final and Ghereby will now be scheduled for an Administrative Review Board.

The tribunal report was then forwarded up the chain for review and action, as per this table of documents.
