The Crown indicates this is a reverse onus situation as he has outstanding matters before the courts.
Furthermore, the Crown states that they have concerns surrounding the secondary and tertiary grounds.
Secondary ground concerns tell us that the Crown believes the likelihood of Nguci to reoffend or become a public safety concern is substantial.
Tertiary grounds indicates the Crown believes that if Nguci were to be released, that the public would lose faith in the administration of justice.
Nguci is remanded until tomorrow, and ordered to be held in custody.
