Tony Accurso has been granted bail and released from prison.
The former construction magnate is appealing his conviction on fraud and corruption charges.
He has already undergone trial - twice - and last week, was sentenced to four years in prison.
Accurso is fighting his conviction for taking part in the 15-year-long corruption scheme that was overseen by former Laval Mayor Gilles Vaillancourt.
