Waterkloof Two to remain in custody
Correctional Services says two of the so-called Waterkloof Four have a serious case to answer to.
JOHANNESBURG - The Correctional Services Department says two of the so-called Waterkloof Four have a serious case to answer to and will remain in custody pending a review of their parole.
Frikkie du Preez and Christoff Becker were rearrested on Sunday after a video emerged showing the pair apparently drinking alcohol and having a party in prison.
The two men, along with Gert van Schalkwyk and Reinardt Tiedt, were released on parole last week after serving less than half of their 12-year sentence for the murder of a homeless man.
The department was expected to release the findings of its investigation today, but it says the probe is far more complex than initially thought.
Becker and du Preez will therefore remain behind bars until they have appeared in front of the parole board.
The department's Manelisi Wolela says the decision was made after looking at a preliminary report.
"Based on that, we believe they have a serious case to answer to. Therefore, we're keeping them for longer."
Meanwhile, Minister Sbu Ndebele says anarchy in South Africa's prisons will not be tolerated and anyone found guilty with regards to this case will face the full might of the law.
