Incident: Arkan Mohammed Ali detained

According to a statement on the ACLU website, this month, Arkan Mohammed Ali was detained. He will state that, over the next 11 months, he was detained at various facilities in Iraq, including Abu Ghraib. We will produce scars as evidence of mistreatment during his detention. He will claim that he was
  • kept in a small, coffin-like box;
  • severely beaten during interrogations, at times, to the point of losing consciousness;
  • stabbed;
  • shocked with a small metal device;
  • urinated on;
  • denied sleep for days at a time, with severe beatings when he did start to fall asleep;
  • threatened with death, including by being run over with a vehicle, and threatened with guns and swords; and
  • threatened with detention in Guantanamo, where he could be killed.
Upon release, he claims that he was threatened that if he ever told about his experience, he would never see his family again.
