Template:Infobox WoT detainees Abdul Razaq, a young Afghani man, was the first detainee to be released from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Razaq was released after four months when interrogators determined that he was not actually a terrorist, but a schizophrenic sufferer.[1][2]

Razaq was repatriated on May 11, 2002. Newseek conducted an interview with Razeq in a high security mental institution on May 20, 2002.

Razaq, a member of the Uzbek ethnic group, said that he was captured because American authorities did not believe he was not a foreigner.

Razaq reported observing a hunger strike, and a detainee who tried to commit suicide. But he also reported that he was happy with the food he was served, and that the detainees were given Qu'rans and allowed to pray without interference.[3][4][5]
