quote I suspect that remand is a term used to mean being held in captivity or quarantine, though relating to a police situation that captivity would be commonly referred to as custody. I base my opinion on the fact that the word "remand" is similar to "reprimand" which means to punish, punishment in school (the sole environment which I co-exist with others my own age on a daily basis ) means detention which is why I believe "remand" is similar to "reprimand ":) unquote
