An interpreter for the top NATO commander in Afghanistan was denied bail Wednesday after being accused of disclosing British security secrets to an enemy state. Daniel James, 44, an Iranian-born British citizen, began working for Lt. Gen. David Richards in March after logging 19 years as a reservist, District Judge Timothy Workman said. He was arrested Dec. 18 by counterterrorism detectives and is charged under Britain's Official Secrets Act, said prosecutor Richard Whittam. James - an Army corporal working for Richards, the senior commander of NATO's 32,000 troops in Afghanistan - is alleged to have "communicated to another person information calculated to be directly or indirectly useful to the enemy on Nov. 2," Whittam said. Security officials not present at the hearing have said the charge refers to alleged communications with Iran.
