Abbas Habid Rumi Al Naely

Abbas Habid Rumi Al Naely is a citizen of Iraq, who was held in extrajudicial detention in the United States Guantanamo Bay Naval Base in Cuba.[1] Al Naely's Guantanamo Internment Serial Number was 758.

Witness for detainee 433

Jawad Jabber Sadkhan had a statement from detainee 758 submitted as evidence at his Tribunal.[2] In his statement detainee 758 identified himself as "Shaker Al Iraqi (Abass Abdou Erromi)". He testified that he suspected the accusation against him and detainee 433 were the result of animosity from detainee 111, Ali Abdul Motalib Awayd Hassan Al Tayeea. who he identified as "Ali Abdou Ahtaleb Al Iraqi" and detainee 252, who he identified as "Yassin Basro Al Yamani". The official record shows detainees 111 and 262 as Ali Abdul Motalib Awayd Hassan Al Tayeea and Yasim Muhammed Basardah.[1] Al Naely says he knew Sadkhan in Afghanistan, and he knew him as a good, peaceloving, family man. Al Naely said that the two men he identified as Sadkhan's accusers did not know him in Afghanistan, and their accusations were complete fabrications.

Official status reviews

Originally the Bush Presidency asserted that captives apprehended in the "war on terror" were not covered by the Geneva Conventions, and could be held indefinitely, without charge, and without an open and transparent review of the justifications for their detention. In 2004 the United States Supreme Court ruled, in Rasul v. Bush, that Guantanamo captives were entitled to being informed of the allegations justifying their detention, and were entitled to try to refute them.

Office for the Administrative Review of Detained Enemy Combatants

Following the Supreme Court's ruling the Department of Defense set up the Office for the Administrative Review of Detained Enemy Combatants.

Statement from Jawad Jabber Sadkhan

Jawad Jabber Sadkhan wrote a letter of testimonial describing helping Al Naely when they were both Iraqi refugees in Afghanistan, during the Taliban's regime.

“I know this man from Afghanistan when he visited me in my own home begging me for some help. I did not have anything to offer [him]. But when I looked at his overall look and his dirty clothing he had on, he looked so miserable. So I went to another friend of mine and asked him for money. That person gave me about $3 and I gave it to ISN 758. I have invited him to stay at my house for that particular night, byt he refused. This person came back to me again (meaning ISN 758) asking me for more money that I didn’t have to give him. I also learned from other people that this person was addicted to Hash, he smokes grass. This was a reason that made me decide not to help him because every time I would help him he would spend it on Hash. To me he was not a political person, a religious person, or a military person. I have never heard once that he hated America or it’s [sic] allies. I never heard that he really served with the Taliban. He received some help from the Taliban like other Iraqi refugees, and I am one of them. I am one of them and I have received help from the Taliban. They only gave me food for my family and me. They gave me a house to stay with my family. In regards to 758, they did not give him a house because he was not married. They only gave [one] to me. He is a peaceful man and he does not pose a threat on nobody and he has parents that need him. Anything that happened between him and me, like some kind of animosity was a result of the investigators here on this facility. So they can create animosity between the two of use [sic]. I was exposed to a lot of abuse, psychological abuse from the investigators and God only knows what happened. This person ISN 758 is innocent from any allegations and God knows everything. This is what I have and peace be upon [you].”

On March 16, 2007 the Department of Defense published records of the captives' height and weights.[3] Abbas Habid Rumi Al Naely's records indicate he was 73 inches tall, and that he weighed 146 pounds when he arrived at Guantanamo on August 5, 2002.[4]


Abbas Habid Rumi al Naely was transferred to Iraq on Jan. 17, 2009.[5][6]
