A judge ruled yesterday: Raymond Tatto, of Wal-des-Montz, should be out of jail during legal proceedings, in the Outois.
During the trial, which was released this week, the 51-year-old argued through his lawyers that he was willing to be released on more than $ 20,000 bail and wear a terrestrial bracelet.
But these arguments did not explicitly convince Quebec court judge Marc Philippe that after he took the request under counsel he considered the accused to represent a danger to society and “his body organ and product are of concern”.
Stubbornly, he was arrested last January on charges of making death threats against Prime Minister Trudeau, importing banned equipment and possessing banned firearms with ammunition.
The accused would have become a terrorist by 2020. At the same time he would have reported violent, racist and sexual comments on social networks, and he would have equipped himself with weapons.

The submachine gun escaped from officers during a first search of Raymond Tattoo in January. It was captured in May.
Submachine guns, long guns and a submachine gun were seized during two raids in January and May at his home in Val-des-Montes.
“He is serious about his words and his actions,” Judge Philip said, adding that even the defendant “made calls to the office of MP Steven McKinnon,” [où] The [discutait] Civil War and [disait] Ready to die “.
He emphasized that the tattoo “has the potential to import weapons.” [et] You need to protect them from the eyes of the police during the first search of the house.
Tattoo’s house was filled with secret caches with a double base and activated by electromagnets in which he kept his weapons and belongings.
The accused also had a police wave jammer, which could have been used to neutralize law enforcement communications if he had taken action.
It “suggests a very thoughtful plan,” the judge said.
According to him, it seems that the accused will not comply with his terms. When he was arrested, he was sentenced to 10 years in possession of tattoo weapons after being convicted in a 2017 drug trafficking case.
