The defense, of course, described all this differently. From AP, with thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist:
SAN FRANCISCO – Federal prosecutors allege that secret recordings offer further details about a 22-year-old Lodi man they claim attended a jihad training camp designed to teach attendees how to kill people, a newspaper reported in Monday’s edition.
The latest allegations came Friday from U.S. Attorney McGregor W. Scott in a court filing, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. In the filing, prosecutors asked a federal judge in Sacramento to continue holding Hamid Hayat and his father, Umer Hayat, 47, without bail.
A hearing was scheduled Monday at U.S. District Court in Sacramento, where attorneys for the Hayats were to argue for their bail to be reduced. Both men have been charged with lying about the son’s alleged presence at a training camp.
According to prosecutors, a witness recorded Hamid Hayat when in 2003 when he was in the United States, and again when Hayat was in Pakistan the same year.
Prosecutors Steven Lapham and Robert Tice-Raskin also allege that Hamid Hayat acknowledged to federal agents that he attended a camp in Pakistan for at least three months in 2003. He was arrested shortly after returning from Pakistan.
“He described, with fair detail, the location of the second camp and layout of the same,” the Lapham and Tice-Raskin filing states. “The purpose of both camps was to train for jihad and to teach people to kill those who work against Muslims.”
