DIA Information regarding alleged detainee abuse

This document forms part of the documentation released on 15 October 2004 by DIA in response to an FOIA court order.

A rather dismissive document is produced by DIA relating to allegations of abuse by former detainee Mohammed Maleem Fidel. Mohammed alleges that while detained in Kandahar:

  • US Forces tortured him; and
  • he was forced him to perform sexual acts with dogs (c.f. Habib, 01 October 2001, an Australian citizen detained in Egypt, Pakistan, and Guantanamo Bay, who claimed he was threatened that he would be forced to perform sexual acts with dogs).
Another detainee, Amir Mohammad Agha, makes similar claims.
