Prince Ernst August of Hanover, 66, was released from prison in Wels on Wednesday afternoon.  Local police announced that the release is based in certain conditions. He is required to stay in one place,  and he is not permitted to contact the alleged victims. 

It is not known where Prince Ernst August will remain until his trial.  

He was arrested on September 7 after threatening and coercing one of his employees and her husband.   This is the third incident since July when he threatened one police officer and sightly injured another officer.

Ernst August, a great-grandson of Kaiser Wilhelm II faces up to three years in prison.  Neither the law firm representing the prince nor the House of Hannover wanted to comment on the case.
