JOHANNESBURG - Both men involved in the murders of actor Brett Goldin and his friend Richard Bloom were denied parole at the Drakenstein Correctional Centre on Wednesday.

Jade Wyngaard and Nurshad Davids appeared before the parole board.

Goldin and Bloom were killed in Cape Town in 2006 after being hijacked and robbed.

Goldin's mother Denise welcomed the decision to deny parole.

"I feel that it was the correct decision and I am grateful for it."

Davids and Wyngaard applied for parole after the amendment to the Correctional Services Act came into effect, meaning offenders may be released after serving half their sentences.

The pair have served six years of their 12-year sentences.
