Black allowed to remain free on bond

Former Hollinger International CEO Conrad Black will be allowed to remain free on bond as he appeals his conviction for fraud and obstruction of justice:

The restrictions included forbidding Mr. Black from returning to Canada, his home country, where Hollinger, now the Sun-Times Media Group, was once based. He is required to remain in Illinois or in Florida, where he has an estate. Mr. Black, who gave up his Canadian citizenship to become a member of the House of Lords, has surrendered his British passport.

Hollinger International, at one time during the 1990s, owned The Carthage Press and the Neosho Daily News.
