Little is known about Ibrahim Jan, other than the fact that, according to CIA records cited by the SSCI report, he was initially held by the US military for over 30 days, and was not registered with the ICRC, pending his transfer to CIA custody. Jan’s transfer was completed pursuant to a September 2005 Memorandum of Understanding between the CIA and the DoD relating to US military involvement in CIA detention activities. Analysis by The Rendition Project and the Bureau of Investigative Journalism has established that he was transferred into CIA custody at some point between 1 September 2005 and 31 October 2005. According to calculations published by the SSCI, he was held by the CIA for around 10-11 months (310-319 days), though there is no information contained within the report about where, or under what conditions, Jan was detained. Another CIA prisoner, Abu Ja’far al-Iraqi, was also transferred from DoD to CIA custody under this MoU, although it is unclear whether they were held and transferred at the same time.

Ibrahim Jan would have been transferred out of CIA custody at some point between 8 July 2006 and 6 September 2006. His fate and whereabouts after this point are unknown.
