January 03, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

A federal immigration judge in Detroit ordered the founder of a charity accused of funding terrorist activities held indefinitely on a visa violation charge, the man's lawyer said.

Rabih Haddad, 41, was arrested at his Ann Arbor home Dec. 14, the same day federal agents raided the offices of Global Relief Foundation in Illinois, which he helped start.

The U.S. Immigration Court hearing on Haddad's detainment was closed and a court spokesman declined to comment on it.
