Poly Implant Prothese (PIP) boss Jean-Claude Mas (C) looks on as he leaves the jail of Avignon Le Pontet after a French judge ordered his release, on October 29, 2012 in Le Pontet, southern France. Mas, 73, was ordered released but will be 'placed under judicial supervision,' his lawyer Yves Haddad said, adding that he would be freed later today.Between 400,000 and 500,000 women around the world are believed to have received allegedly faulty breast implants made by PIP, the now-defunct company that Mas founded in southern France, as French doctors have registered 20 cases of cancer among women fitted with the implants.
