CID Report: 0181-04-CID259-80228

Upon being processed in to Abu Ghraib prison, a 48 year-old Iraqi male detainee complained to the Prisoner Interview/Interrogation Team (PIT), that U.S. forces had punched him in the stomach while transporting him to the prison. The medical screening did not produce any evidence to support or substantiate the claim of abuse. The screeners and other personnel at the facility at the time this detainee was brought in did not recall or remark anything especially out of the ordinary for the processing of this detainee and the detainee himself stated "I do not want to write a report about that issue, and that is up to my free well and without
any pressure." Investigation terminated because victim refused to provide further information to investigators.</p>
