According to Behadrei Haredim, Yoel Zev Goldstein will soon be free.
Yoel Zev Goldstein is still in custody, however, because he doesn't have a valid visa and has to wait until one is issued before he leaves prison.
That should take about a week.
Goldstein and other Satmar yeshiva students smuggled bags that they claim they thought contained antiques into Japan.
They were caught and the bags turned out to contain $3.6 million of illegal drugs.
The bags were given to them by a man who was an aide to one of the two Satmar rebbes.
Unlike his mules, the brains of the operation was convicted, but Japan allowed him to serve most of his sentence in an Israeli prison.
President Shimon Peres commuted his sentence to time served him long before his sentence was supposed to end, angering Japan.
The plight of the Satmar yeshiva drug mules has been a cause celebré in the haredi world, with leading haredi rabbis and activists working to free them.
Large amounts of money was raised for their defense, and a music video highlighting their plight was produced.
