U.S. District Judge approves bond for Lodi father charged in terror probe

A federal judge on yesterday approved the release of a Lodi man charged with lying to investigators about his son's attendance at an al-Qaida training camp in Pakistan.

U.S. District Judge Garland E. Burrell Jr. upheld a magistrate's decision permitting the release of Umer Hayat, 47, on $1.5 million bond. The order came over the objections of federal prosecutors, who have said Hayat is a serious flight risk.

Burrell ruled that Hayat can be monitored on house arrest to make sure he doesn't flee the country while he awaits trial. If Hayat were to flee, his extended family would forfeit five homes valued together at $1.5 million.

Burrell gave prosecutors until Nov. 3 to challenge the value placed on the property, meaning Hayat will not be released at least until then. Prosecutors also could appeal but had not made any immediate decision, a spokeswoman said.

Hayat's 23-year-old son, Hamid, remains in federal custody and is charged with supporting terrorism and two counts of lying to investigators. Federal prosecutors say he attended the terrorist training camp in 2003 and 2004, reported AP. P.T.
