A 45-year-old man accused by the Israeli government of funding terrorist activity in the West Bank will be released Sunday on $3,500 (€2,795) bail, his lawyer told relatives Thursday. Hasan Hajmohammad, co-founder of the Islamic charity Baitulmaal, was stopped by military officials at an Israeli checkpoint in the West Bank and was taken into an Israeli detention center April 3, said his brother, Abdullah Hajmohammad, who was interpreting for his brother's attorney Wisam Ighbaria. In a telephone interview with The Associated Press, Abdullah Hajmohammad said from the West Bank that Israeli military officials last week charged his brother with funding a terrorist organization after he transferred $20,000 from a US bank to The Charity Association of Jenin, based in the West Bank, in 2003. The Israeli government said it would not comment until after the trial.
