(Denver-AP) -- A Virginia federal judge has cleared the way for James Ujaama to be transferred to Seattle to face charges he attempted to set up a terrorist training camp.
The Denver native had his first public hearing in court Friday in Alexandria, Virginia. Ujaama had been held since his arrest in Denver last month on a federal material witness warrant.
The government said his testimony was to be part of a secret grand jury proceeding investigating terrorism.
A grand jury in Seattle on Wednesday indicted Ujaama for allegedly trying to set up the training camp near Bly, Oregon.
In a statement read by his lawyer after the hearing, Ujaama says his arrest amounts to his being kidnapped by criminals posing as statesmen.
