A federal judge may decide today whether to set bail for a man who has been behind bars for more than two years, held on suspicion of trying to blow up the Vietnamese Embassy in Thailand.

An attorney for Van Duc Vo said his client is a freedom fighter whose alleged crime was meant to be a political statement, not an actual bombing. He is not a flight risk but a dispirited U.S. citizen who would like to spend some time with his children and his ailing father, his lawyer said.

But U.S. authorities said the man is a flight risk, especially because he could face the death penalty if he is extradited to Thailand.

Vo's case has attracted widespread attention. He is viewed as a hero by many in the Vietnamese American community, but as a terrorist by others. Supporters have assembled outside the federal building in Santa Ana whenever Vo is in court. Vietnamese government leaders have pressed for his swift extradition.
