An adjudicator with the Immigration and Refugee Board will decide Tuesday whether an alleged Calgary gangster will be detained in custody pending deportation.
Ho was released from jail Friday and taken into custody by Canada Border services after serving nearly 3 years in jail for weapons offences.
At a detention hearing, Immigration officials said that Tien Ngoc Ho poses a danger to the public and is a flight risk.
While the 25 year old refuses to admit he's a member of the FOB-K gang, immigration produced photos of Ho consorting with gang members while in the Drumheller pen.
The concern is that if Ho is released he will be a target for the rival gang.
His lawyer says he should be released under house arrest and allowed to live in his parents house and would be under constant scrutiny from police and immigration pending deportation which is expected in the next month.
