The BBC reported:
David Hicks, 32, was captured with Taleban forces in Afghanistan in 2001, and spent five years at the Guantanamo Bay detention camp.
In March he became the first person to be convicted at a US war crimes trial since the end of the World War II.
Under a plea deal, he was jailed for seven years, with all but nine months suspended, and returned to Australia.
Hicks was released from the maximum security prison at Yalata in Adelaide.
