Jean-Pierre Bemba Gombo has been provisionally released by the ICC. His conviction on one set of charges was overturned by the Appeals Chamber, by a 3-2 vote, on June 8. Today, a panel hearing the other charges (offenses against the administration of justice) ordered his release. Here is Trial Chamber VII's statement concerning the release order. The decision on his application for release can be found here.
