Ahmed Zaid Salim Zuhair: Letter to his Attorney, July 18, 2008

To my brother Ramzi Kassem, with greetings and respect, may peace be upon you:

A new development in my life: One of the guards, number [REDACTED], threatened to kill me on Thursday night, 17 July 2008. The guard told me that he will kill me and chop me my body into pieces. The other guard, number [REDACTED], said: Don't kill him, but cut off his ears and his nose. That whole night I did not sleep. Every hour, he banged on the door and woke me throughout the night so I did not sleep at all that night.

That night, they also searched my papers, sheet by sheet, reading them and taking some of them away. This angered me so much that I tore up the remaining papers.

Right now my state of mind is not normal because I have been threatened with death by a guard.

So do not send any more papers after today.

Ahmed Zaid
18 July 2008
