Air India perjurer Inderjit Singh Reyat granted release to halfway house
The only person convicted in the 1985 Air India bombings has been granted statutory release from prison to a halfway house.
Inderjit Singh Reyat was charged with perjury in 2006 for repeatedly lying during his testimony at the trial into the bombing deaths of 331 people, mostly Canadians.
Reyat was found guilty in 2010 and sentenced to a record nine years in prison, or seven years and seven months after accounting for time served.
Under the law, offenders must be granted statutory release after they have served two-thirds of their sentence.
