Former Bosnian Serbian President Biljana Plavsic has arrived in Belgrade, after her release today from a Swedish prison where she has been jailed since 2003 convicted of war crimes in the Balkan conflict.

"I am pleased to be free," Plavsic said to news agency AFP shortly after her arrival.

Plavsic was released from Hinseberg womens's prison on Tuesday morning, and was driven straight to Arlanda airport where she boarded a plane to Belgrade. Shortly after landing she was  blowing kisses to the public and posing with the Prime Minister Milorad Dodik before departing for her flat.

Some critics are angry over the Swedish government pardon given to her – insisting that she should serve her full 11-year prison sentence she received from the Hague war crimes tribunal.

Plavsic will reside in Belgrade since it's considered too risky to send her back to her home country of Bosnia-Hercegovina.
