Conrad Black set to head home from Canada

Canada will allow former newspaper mogul Conrad Black to live in the country after he finishes his US prison sentence even though he is no longer a citizen.

Canadian-born Black, a member of the House of Lords currently serving a sentence in Florida for fraud and obstruction of justice, is expected to be released later this week.

Canada's Department of Citizenship and Immigration has granted him a one-year temporary resident permit.

A US jury found Black guilty of scheming with partner David Radler and other executives to siphon millions in proceeds from the sales of newspapers as they unwound Hollinger International.
