DENVER (AP) - A man detained for 5½ years after being accused of providing material support to an Uzbek terror organization could be released this week.

The Denver Post reports https://goo.gl/PJPgrF Jamshid Muhtorov could be released following a bond hearing and pending the outcome of a home inspection Thursday. Prosecutors also plan to appeal a judge’s order to release the man.

On Friday, a federal judge in Denver ordered Muhtorov’s release before his trial, which is expected to begin early next year. The order came a day after Muhtorov filed court documents accusing the detention center’s warden of violating his right to a speedy trial.

Muhtorov is accused of supporting the Islamic Jihad Union and communicating with its website administrator. He denied the allegations after his January 2012 arrest, saying he was going to visit family in Uzbekistan.
