NCIS investigative report introducing two translated statements written by Guantanamo detainee Mohamed Al Hanashi prior to allegedly taking his own life the evening of June 1, 2009. The first statement is dated April 1, 2009. The second statement was apparently written the day he died.
Sworn statement of Chief of Behavioral Health Services, Guantanamo, who was also the psychologist who treated Mohamed Al Hanashi. This Chief Psychologist admits that he walked away from his patient Al Hanashi when the latter started to complain of being tortured.
