Bond Granted for First Afghan Soldier: Major Jan Arash, In a Contested Bond Hearing Over DHS Opposition

Visit the Afghan Soldiers blog for more information

Matthew Borowski successfully argued a bond motion for Major Jan Arash today and the judge granted a $25,000.00 bond, over the opposition of DHS. We are glad a bond was granted, but it is an exceptionally high bond especially considering that Major Arash entered the country legally and has a strong claim for asylum.

We need your financial support to get Major Arash out of detention. Please consider donating. If we reach our goal of $25,000.00 we can bond Major Arash out of detention and greatly increase his chances of gaining asylum.

Borowski Law will be seeking bond for the other two soldiers, Captain Aminyar and Captain Askarzadeh, on October 22.

More coverage and information will be posted to the Afghan Soldiers blog. Visit the Afghan Soldiers blog and donation page at
