Pakistanis Accused of Terror Ties Freed

Two Pakistani men charged with immigration violations but also suspected by the FBI of having ties to terrorist groups were ordered released on bail Tuesday. U.S. District Judge Lewis Babcock said the government failed to prove that Sajjad Nasser or Irfan Kamran were a threat to the community. Federal prosecutors, who had appealed a federal magistrate’s decision to grant the men bail last week, said Tuesday they may appeal Babcock’s order as well. Babcock set Kamran’s bail at $30,000 and Nasser’s at $100,000, and set conditions for their release, including electronic monitoring. The defendants’ attorneys said Tuesday that both are expected to raise the money needed to be released. Kamran, Nasser and four members of their extended family are charged with lying to immigration authorities to help a relative stay in the United States. Three other defendants have been released pending trial. A fourth, Haroon Rashid, is being held without bail. Full Story
