Template:Bio-coatrack Majid Hamad Abdulrahman Al-Fareij is a citizen of Saudi Arabia who was held in extrajudicial detention in the United States Guantanamo Bay detention camps, in Cuba.[1] His Guantanamo Internment Serial Number was 336. Guantanamo counter-terrorism analysts estimate he was born in 1980, in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

Combatant Status Review Tribunal

Initially the Bush administration asserted that they could withhold all the protections of the Geneva Conventions to captives from the war on terror. This policy was challenged before the Judicial branch. Critics argued that the USA could not evade its obligation to conduct competent tribunals to determine whether captives are, or are not, entitled to the protections of prisoner of war status.

Subsequently the Department of Defense instituted the Combatant Status Review Tribunals. The Tribunals, however, were not authorized to determine whether the captives were lawful combatants -- rather they were merely empowered to make a recommendation as to whether the captive had previously been correctly determined to match the Bush administration's definition of an enemy combatant.

Administrative Review Board

Captives whose CSRT labeled them "enemy combatants" were scheduled for annual Administrative Review Board hearings. These hearings were designed to judge whether the captive still posed a threat if repatriated to their home country.[2]

Guantanamo records

There is no record that Al-Fareij chose to participate in either his Combatant Status Review Tribunal or his Administrative Review Board hearing.

Repatriation

According to The Saudi Repatriates Report Al-Fareij was one of sixteen men repatriated on December 14, 2006.[3]
