Abdul Rahman (ISN 357) - Allegations of Abuse
Before the Tribunal could begin, the detainee stated the following:
Detainee: Is it time for someone to loosen my handcuffs a little bit?
Tribunal President: We have spoken to the guards and the handcuffs are per the SOP, so they will remain as they are.
Detainee: It's OK to be tied up, but they are amazingly tight and making marks on my arm.
Tribunal President: Try moving them down your wrist a little bit, that would probably help.
Detainee: It hurts a lot.
At this time, the Tribunal President paused the Tribunal briefly to allow the guards to loosen the handcuffs for the Detainee.
I don’t believe Americans would do this to anyone. I have always heard that Americans don’t brutalize people. I’m amazed and shocked I’ve been put in this cage for three years, and no one has listened to us so far.
