Formica Report Annex 67: Statement of Commander

Sworn statement by a commander, probably of a detention facility. Discusses detentions and interrogations, and states, "After medical screening the detainee would be ... secured to the floor by a 3ft chain linked to handcuffs.... Detainees were never mistreated in this facility. We never used our guard force as interpreters or interrogators." Talks about the detention of an Iraqi, "a known IED [Improvised Explosive Device] and AIF [Anti-Iraq Force] member in Adhamiya." Discusses interrogations, and states that "all interrogations are done with 3 personnel - a USSF interrogator, a USSF recorder, and the interpreter." Refers to "the sticks and wires that [redacted] found outside the THF" and states that they "were never used on detainees."
