Mohammed Nazir Bin Lep

Mohammed Nazir Bin Lep (also known as Lillie) is a Malaysian affiliate or member of Jemaah Islamiyah and al-Qaeda, currently in American custody in the Guantanamo Bay detention camp. He is one of the 14 detainees who had previously been held at secret locations abroad.[1][2] In the ODNI biographies of those 14, Bin Lep is described as a lieutenant of Hambali (who is also one of those 14, along with another alleged subordinate of his, Mohamad Farik Amin). He was transferred from clandestine custody in an American black site to the Guantanamo Bay detention camps, in Cuba, on September 6, 2006.

Combatant Status Review Tribunal[edit | edit source]

The Summary of Evidence memo and the unredacted transcript from his Tribunal were released on April 3, 2007.[3][4]

The Department of Defense announced on August 9, 2007 that all fourteen of the "high-value detainees" who had been transferred to Guantanamo from the CIA's black sites, had been officially classified as "enemy combatants".[5] Although judges Peter Brownback and Keith J. Allred had ruled two months earlier that only "illegal enemy combatants" could face military commissions, the Department of Defense waived the qualifier and said that all fourteen men could now face charges before Guantanamo military commissions.[6][7]
