Very little is known about Abu Munthir al-Magrebi. Analysis by The Rendition Project and the Bureau of Investigative Journalism has established that he was transferred into CIA custody at some point between 24 May 2005 and 3 June 2005. According to calculations published by the SSCI, he was held by the CIA for over 15 months (460-469 days). The main body of the SSCI report provides no details about his detention or treatment although, prior to its investigation, the Senate Committee had been notified by the CIA that it had held al-Magrebi. No other information about his detention currently exists in the public domain.

Al-Magrebi would have been transferred out of CIA custody at some point between 27 August 2006 and 6 September 2006. His fate and whereabouts after this point are unknown.
