Yasin Qasem Muhammad Ismail: Allegations of Abuse in his CSRT
Detainee: I will talk with you as long as you guarantee me there will be no torture. If it will affect my safety I will say nothing.
Tribunal President: We will guarantee there will be no torture.
Detainee: […] From there they sold me to the Americans. I was afraid in the beginning, because whenever we spoke to the interrogators we were punished. We were hit and tortured. Not only did I get hit and punched they broke my nose. The Americans did this to me. When I arrived in Cuba, I got hit in the place where we eat. I got hit on the shoulder and it was very painful, it was dislocated or something. They threatened to break it monthly even when I got to Cuba they told me I would be here for a long time.
Q.: When you got here in Cuba from Afghanistan, you stated you were tortured here?
A.: Yes, I still use the medication for my shoulder.
Q.: You were hit in the shoulder one time?
A.: More than that. When they brought me here they tied my foot to my back and they threw me on my face. I feel there is something torn in my shoulder from the way I was laying on the floor.
Q.: Did you receive medical treatment here?
A.: I got treatment for the first two weeks I was here.
Q.: But since that incident there has been no other torture?
A.: I haven't but I have seen other people in the camp mistreated and tortured and that affects me psychologically. I was afraid for my life. When the interrogators asked if I was Al-Qaida I would say yes to avoid the torture.
