A U.S. federal judge has denied bail for the son of a Florida imam arrested on charges of financing and supporting the Pakistani Taliban.
U.S. prosecutors have charged Irfan Khan, 37, along with his father and brother, who is also an imam at another Florida mosque, with conspiring to provide material support to terrorists.
The three Pakistani-born U.S. citizens were arrested in May and are among six people indicted on charges they conspired to transfer about $50,000 and provide other support for the Pakistani Taliban, which the U.S. government considers a terrorist organization.
El abogado del padre quiere saber la identidad del informante que ayudó a capturarle llevándole a reuniones y asistiéndole en negociaciones con el Gobierno como Medicare. Dice que su identidad es fundamental para defender a su cliente.
Los fiscales dicen que mandaron más de 50.000 dólares a los taliban.
