Former Bosnian Serb police chief released after sentence commuted

[JURIST] The International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia [official website] announced [press release] Wednesday that it has ordered the release of former Bosnian Serb police chief Stevan Todorovic [PDF indictment] after only two-thirds of his ten year sentence had been served. Todorovic had been serving his sentence in Spain since 2001, when he struck a deal with prosecutors by pleading guilty to one charge of "ethnic cleansing" and agreeing to cooperate with the tribunal in other cases. Tribunal president Judge Theodor Meron commuted the rest of Todorovic's sentence last week. AP has more.
