  1. He (or his attorney) has to be the one to request a bond hearing.

  2. If he cannot obtain legal assistance, he should contact his country's consular officials for information and possible help. Consular notification is a right under Article 36 of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations. Sometimes consular officials can provide valuable information or provide for legal assistance.
