The trial was the first before the ICC to focus on sexual violence as a weapon of war.

It was also the first to determine whether a military commander bore responsibility for the conduct of troops under his control.

Bemba's defence lawyers argued earlier Tuesday at a hearing that he was "not a flight risk" and that "there is no legal or objective justification to separate Mr Bemba from his family for one day longer."

Bemba's lawyer Peter Haynes told journalists that the rebel commander-turned-politician planned to travel to Brussels to be reunited with his family.

Bemba has been held for the past decade at the ICC's detention centre, based in a seaside suburb of The Hague.

His interim release relates to a separate case in which he was handed one year in jail and fined 300,000 euros ($350,000) for bribing witnesses during the war crimes trial.

He lost an appeal against that sentence and the ICC is yet to decide on a new jail term, which carries a maximum of five years. Sentencing is due on July 4.

Legal experts had expected Bemba to be provisionally released given the time he has already spent in jail.
