CID Report - September 14, 2004
Subject of Investigation: Death of Baha Daoud Salim on Sep 13, 3003 in Al-Hakimiya, Basrah, Iraq. File notes that investigation was prompted by ICRC receiving report about Salim dying in custody of coalition forces, and also about the abuse of eight unknown individuals. The offenses were investigated by British Forces, as the offenses occurred while the victims were under their operational control. The file notes: "Coordination with British Forces revealed Mr. Salim's cause of death to be Asphyxiation and his Manner of Death to be a "Potential Murder." As the British forces would not release a copy of their report, the identities of the remaining victims could not be determined.
