[In response to the allegation “the Detainee agreed to fight with the Taliban"]

Personal Representative: […] The Detainee stated this is false. An interrogator here in GTMO, without any torture, told him he would never get out of Cuba unless the Detainee agreed to say or make statements; so the Detainee said that.

Detainee: Also the interrogator said to me I would not leave this place unless I agreed to everything the interrogator was saying. I had to say something to them.

[…]

Personal Representative: […] The Detainee was never in Afghanistan. This was all not true. He made this statement after an interrogator in Cuba spoke to him and told the Detainee he would never leave Cuba unless the Detainee agreed to say this or make allegations against himself.
