U.S. prosecutors object to releasing terror suspect on less than $1.5 million bond

A man accused in a U.S. terrorism investigation is too dangerous to be released on anything less than $1.5 million bond, prosecutors said and asked a judge to reject Umer Hayat's request that his bond be lowered to $1.2 million.

A judge last month approved Hayat's release if he guarantees his appearance at trial with five houses owned by his extended family. Hayat is charged with lying to investigators about his son's attendance at an al-Qaida training camp in Pakistan.

Following doubts over ownership of the fifth house, Hayat's attorney has asked that his client's bond be set at the value of four of the homes, or $1.2 million.

Prosecutors insisted that Hayat poses a potential danger and is likely to flee if released. They also argued that $1.2 million is not enough, even if Hayat, 47, is intensively monitored and kept under house arrest in Lodi, an agricultural community south of Sacramento.

Hayat's 23-year-old son, Hamid, remains in custody and is charged with supporting terrorism and lying to investigators. U.S. prosecutors say he attended the terrorist training camp in 2003 and 2004.

Both Hayats are U.S. citizens. They were arrested in June shortly after returning from Pakistan, AP reports.
