The man who police allege is the head of one of northwestern Ontario's most significant criminal organizations remains in detention following a bail hearing Friday.
John Harry Tsekouras hired a high-profile defence lawyer — Eddie Greenspan — to represent him.
The 38-year-old Thunder Bay man was charged last month with being the director of a criminal organization, along with several drug trafficking offences.
Proceedings at the bail hearing are subject to a court-ordered publication ban. The reasons for the decision on the bail application are also banned from publication.
