Diagolon leader Jeremy MacKenzie has been granted bail and released from prison."I've been gone for a while. Maybe you've noticed. Maybe you didn't. It's probably better if you didn't," MacKenzie said in video posted to social media on Tuesday night.The Crown consented on Friday to allow MacKenzie out of custody ahead of trial on assault and weapons charges resulting from a November 2021 incident alleged to have occurred near the Saskatchewan community of Viscount.The controversial leader of Diagolon was originally denied bail on October 7. He had orginally planned to challenge that decision, but the Crown decided to waive its previous objection to MacKenzie's release ahead of trial.MacKenzie’s bail comes with several conditions, including $35,000 in sureties. A total of $5,000 of that is MacKenzie’s own money, while the other $30,000 was put up by two people in Nova Scotia who Mackenzie will be required to live with following his release.MacKenzie is also prohibited from possessing guns or ammunition consuming alcohol or drugs that aren’t prescribed to him, must abide by a curfew, and must remain in Nova Scotia unless attending court.The Saskatchewan RCMP arrested MacKenzie in late September after he was charged over the summer with assault, pointing a firearm, mischief, and using a restricted weapon in a careless manner. MacKenzie's girlfriend, Morgan May, told the Western Standard the incident that led to his arrest was "fabricated," and there was never any firearm involved.READ MORE: Diagolon leader's partner claims incident that led to his arrest was 'fabricated'MacKenzie and his group Diagolon — which is based off a fictional country stretching from Alaska to Florida — have been through a slew of controversies over the past few years. The incidents range from crude statements MacKenzie and his followers have made during livestreams, to Diagolon patches that were found alongside firearms during the border blockade in Coutts, AB.The Canadian Anti-Hate Network called Diagolon a far-right, accelerationist group whose members espouse racist and sexist ideologies. But MacKenzie has repeatedly explained that Diagolon is a "joke country," and that the mainstream media, Liberal and NDP politicians and RCMP has exaggerated the threat his group poses.READ MORE: Leader of Diagolon claims to be 'waging war' on mediaMacKenzie said Tuesday night following his release from the "Saskatchewan zoo for insane criminals," he was waiting for a flight back to Nova Scotia where he would be back to "pissin' people off and rockin' the boat."The Diagolon leader also thanked his fans for writing letters to him while in prison."I can't thank you enough for everything you've done. Anything like that is a piece of cake when you've got that many people rooting for you."
