CID Report: 0247-2004-CID259-80281

Nov. 2, 2005 | CID | ACLU-RDI 2300
Detainee reported that he was arrested after US forces found a weapon in his home. He was detained at Al Sijood Palace, Iraq, and it was during this detention he states he was hooded; flexicuffed; punched; kicked; yelled at; and threatened. Investigation established that there was insufficient evidence to prove or disprove the charges based on the absence of medical records. The report did however interview numerous soldiers from different units who were in contact with the detainee during his incarceration. None of the soldiers corroborated the detainee’s version of events or any aspect of his alleged abuse, despite the variety of soldiers and units that were at the facility at the time. The report found that the allegations were therefore unfounded with no further action to be taken.
