NCIS Report: 60CT04-MEBJ-0467-7XMA/C

<p>NCIS report on the results of investigative efforts regarding allegations of abuse made by two detainees, Ali and Hassan, in Iraq. In one case, a detainee captured on February 8, 2004, alleged he was assaulted while being held at &quot;al Baghdadi&quot; detention facility. It appears he was referring to Camp Baghdadi, which has since closed. Due to lack of records, the investigation was unable to obtain names of members of the capturing unit. The detainee was released from Abu Ghraib on June 28, 2004. In the other case, a detainee alleged abuse at Abu Ghraib after his capture on March 4, 2004. Medical records showed lacerations and abrasions supposedly caused by handcuffs and barbwire during capture. Capturing unit members had returned to their assigned posts, so no interviews were conducted. The investigation was closed.</p>
