Adil al-Jazeeri

Following the interrogation of Abu Naseem, Adil al-Jazeeri was arrested in Hayatabad on June 17, 2003 by Pakistani forces who turned him over to the American CIA.

Jazeeri fought as a mujahid in the Soviet Invasion of Afghanistan, and lived in the country for more than fifteen years.[1]

A former aide to the Afghan foreign minister Wakil Ahmad Mutawakkil,[2] al-Jazeeri is accused of arranging money transfers and acquiring travel visas for al-Qaeda.[3]

Human Rights Watch listed him as one of 39 "disappeared" detainees in 2005, whose whereabouts were unknown since being captured and sent to the CIA.[4]

Jazeeri was actually released from Guantanamo in January 2010.[5]
