Judge Denies Bond For Miami Imam Held On Terror Charge

MIAMI (CBS4) — A federal judge has denied bail for an elderly Muslim imam charged with aiding Pakistani terrorists.

U.S. District Judge Adalberto Jordan on Tuesday denied 76-year-old Hafiz Khan’s latest request to be released from the Federal Detention Center. The judge said the prosecution’s case is “particularly strong.”

Khan is imam of the Flagler Mosque in Miami. He and five others were charged in May with conspiring to support the Pakistani Taliban. Those charged include his son, 24-year-old Izhar Khan, who is an imam in Broward County.

In his ruling, Jordan cited the elderly imam’s bank transactions and recorded phone conversations. He noted that Khan “wishes harm upon this country.”

Jordan delayed a decision on Izhar Khan’s bond request, saying he needs to hear more evidence before ruling.
