US national Jason Grogg is to face new charges in court on Tuesday.
Grogg who was fined $25,000 in court last week for possession of several rounds of ammunition and a firearm was detained by customs, two days later.
Grogg was charged with 8 customs related charges, three counts of false declaration and 5 counts of fraudulent evasion of custom duties.
He appeared in court Monday morning, but Magistrate Laudat said he would adjourn the matter to Tuesday, since he is not in a position to hear the new charges.
Mr. Laudat said since he was the magistrate who heard the previous matters against Mr. Grogg, the question of bias arises if he were to hear the new charges.
Grogg was remanded to the custody of a customs officer, to return to court tomorrow when his matter will be heard by another magistrate.
