Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

CLIVE Derby-Lewis, jailed for the apartheid-era murder of SACP leader Chris Hani, will not be paroled by the end of the year as fur­ther in­for­ma­tion on his case is re­quired, the Cor­rec­tional Ser­vices depart­ment has said.

“Of­fender Derby-Lewis was in­for med to­day of the min­is­ter’s de­ci­sion based on the rec­om­men­da­tion by the Na­tional Coun­cil for Cor­rec­tional Ser­vices that he should not be placed on pa­role as yet,” a state­ment said yes­ter­day.

The coun­cil wants fur­ther doc­u­ments to be pro­vided be­fore mak­ing a fi­nal de­ci­sion, and has rec­om­mended that he should again ap­pear be­fore them at their first meet­ing next year. – Sapa
