The Plovdiv Appellate Court upheld on Thursday the detention of the imam Ahmed Musa, who has been accused of preaching radical Islam in Bulgaria.

The court justified its decision, describing Musa as potentially dangerous and likely to go into hiding in case he is released.

The mother of Musa dismissed the accusations against him, saying that he was innocent and there were no evidences against him.

The eight-month period in which Musa could be detained in the preliminary arrest expires on July 27, private bTV station reports.

Musa, who is sentenced to four years in prison for preaching radical Islam, was arrested in a special operation of the State Agency for Natural Security (DANS) and the police in the town of Pazardzhik in November.
