The families of two of the “Waterkloof Four’ men hoping to be released will consult with lawyers on Monday on what steps to take against the Correctional Services Department.
Prison officials defied both a magistrate's court and high court order that said Gert van Schalkwyk and Reinach Tiedt should be put under community service.
The pair, together with two other co-accused, were convicted in 2008 for the murder of a homeless man and for assaulting another.
Gert van Schalkwyk's stepfather Jimmy Stonehouse says the delays are frustrating.
“The court said our kids are free to go under house arrest. Before all these rules that we have to attend to and where will we get over the weekend? Nowhere, because we do not really know where we stand now,” he says.
