A court in French Polynesia has ordered the release of a Hungarian fugitive who had been jailed since he was arrested in the week before Christmas.
The public broadcaster says paper work for his extradition is incomplete and the 34-year old man is therefore free.
The man had been caught during a routine check of a yacht on Huahine.
He was wanted in Europe after escaping from jail where he was serving a five-year term for robbery.
Reports say he will now marry the Chilean woman he travelled with when he was caught.
