Very little is known about Zakaria Zeineddin. Analysis by The Rendition Project and the Bureau of Investigative Journalism has established that he was transferred into CIA custody at some point between 29 September 2002 and 28 October 2002. According to calculations published by the SSCI, he was held by the CIA for around two months (50-59 days). The main body of the SSCI report provides no details about his detention or treatment. Prior to its investigation, the Senate Committee itself had not been notified by the CIA that it had held Zeineddin, and no other information about his detention currently exists in the public domain. The date ranges for his period in CIA custody have been calculated as part of our analysis of the redacted information provided about each prisoner in Appendix 2 of the SSCI Report.
