A Sudanese aid worker employed at an Islamic charity in Peshawar, Hamad was rounded up in a sweep by Pakistani agents in 2002 and eventually transferred to American custody. Hamad’s wife gave birth to a baby girl after her husband had been disappeared to Guantanamo; the girl died for lack of adequate medical care. Hamad’s colleagues describe him as peaceful and charitable. When his case was reviewed by a U.S. military tribunal, one major in the commission deemed Hamad’s arrest and detention as “unconscionable.” He was released and repatriated to Sudan in 2007.
