Emad Abdalla Hassan is a Yemeni citizen. He travelled from Yemen to Pakistan to study as he was not able to access specialised higher education in Yemen. Emad is an intellectual with a passion for poetry, ranging from the great Sufi poets like Rumi, to English poets such as Wilfred Owen.
He was captured in Faisalabad, Pakistan, and sold for $5000 to US forces. During the interrogation that followed, he was asked if he knew Al Qaeda and he responded: “Yes, I know Al Qa'idah well." He was talking about a small village near where he grew up in Yemen. But this didn’t matter.

Mentioned in the "No-hearing hearings" study
According to the study entitled, No-hearing hearings, Emad Abdalla Hassan was an example of a detainee who was arbitrarily denied the opportunity to present exculpatory documents to his Tribunal. The study questioned whether he would have been determined not to have been an enemy combatant if the Tribunal had been able to find his passport in the evidence locker.
