  4. The detainee was captured on the afternoon of 10 February 2003 along with his uncle, by U.S. personnel.

[edit] Administrative Review Board

Detainees whose Wikipedia:Combatant Status Review Tribunal labeled them "enemy combatants" were scheduled for annual Wikipedia:Administrative Review Board hearings. These hearings were designed to assess the threat a detainee might pose if released or transferred, and whether there were other factors that warranted his continued detention.[5]

A Summary of Evidence memo was prepared for Abdul Bagi first annual Administrative Review Board on August 6, 2004.[6]

Bagi chose to participate in his Administrative Review Board hearing.[7]

The following primary factors favor continued detention

[edit] Guantanamo Medical records

On 16 March 2007 the Department of Defense published medical records for the captives.[8] Abdul Bagi's records indicate he was weighed every month, from January 2004 through December 2005. But unlike every other captive's records, his weights are missing. Three other fields recorded for almost every other captive—his "inprocess date", his height, and his "inprocess weight" -- are also missing.

[edit] Repatriation

On November 25, 2009, the Department of Defense published a list of the dates captives were transferred from Guantanamo.[9] According to that list Abdul Bagi was transferred on February 8, 2006.
