French President Hollande speaks to journalists in Grenoble about the liberation of Florence Cassez January 23, 2013. Mexico's Supreme Court on Wednesday ordered the immediate release of Frenchwoman Florence Cassez, who is serving a 60-year sentence for kidnapping, after judges said her trial was tainted. Federal officers arrested Cassez, 38, in 2005 at a ranch near Mexico City with her former boyfriend, Israel Vallarta, whom they accused of heading a kidnapping gang called the Zodiacs. A judge convicted her in 2008 after a closed-door trial with no jury, typical of most cases in Mexico. REUTERS/Robert Pratta (FRANCE - Tags: POLITICS CRIME LAW)
