From Tokata (May 21, 2012):
After rejecting an appeal by the prosecutor earlier in the week, a Paris sentencing court has granted Jean-Marc Rouillan a conditional release, which began on the morning of Friday, May 18. Rouillan had spent the past year under a partial release regimen, out of prison but unable to leave Marseille, where he has been working for the Agone publishing house. His freedom of movement was limited by an electronic bracelet. Now, after spending over 24 years in prison, he will still have to submit to numerous methods of control during the next six years. For example, he will not be able to leave the Bouches-du-Rhône area and will have to surrender a portion of his monthly salary to the families of Georges Besse and René Audran, whose deaths he was sentenced for.
