Accused not a danger to public and therefore detention unnecessary

Petitioner sought revision of decision that granted release from custody of accused. Accused was permanent resident in Canada and was facing proceedings on inadmissibility following condemnation on several counts of sexual assault, assault with weapon, causing bodily harm and threatening to cause death. Victim was ex-wife of accused. Petitioner claimed that decision failed to assess danger to public of accused and risk of evasion, accentuated by imminent decision on inadmissibility. Application not allowed. Court affirmed that accused was co-operative with authorities and underwent several sessions on anger management. Court affirmed that decision was supported by facts and took into account all aspects of file of accused concluding that he was not a danger to public and therefore his detention was unnecessary.
