Released Biljana Plavsic Leaves Sweden

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

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.

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