Sainovic arrived in Belgrade late on Wednesday. He was released after having served two thirds of his sentence.

His lawyer Toma Fila said the Tribunal accepted the defense team's appeal to free their client.

Sainovic turned himself in to the Tribunal on April 2, 2003. He was charged with crimes against humanity and violations of customs of war in Kosovo from January 1 until June 20, 1999.

Sainovic was found guilty and sentenced to 22 years in jail with the first-instance ruling. The final verdict sent him to jail for 18 years.
