Two of the four men linked to the murders of Richard Bloom & Brett Goldin are out on parole.
CAPE TOWN - The correctional services department has confirmed that two of the four men linked to the murders of fashion designer Richard Bloom and actor Brett Goldin were released on parole this morning.
Bloom and Goldin's bodies were found next to the Klipfontein Road offramp of the M5 Highway in April 2006.
Convicts Jade Wyngaard and Nurshad Davids are being released from the Drakenstein Correctional Centre after serving two thirds of their 12 year sentence.
The correctional services department's Simphiwe Xako says their parole comes with certain conditions.
"We can also confirm that they underwent rehabilitation programs, such as anger management."
He says the entire process has been transparent.
"The parole process was extremely open. It included everyone, including the victims' family members."
Meanwhile, the two men convicted of murdering Bloom and Goldin, Shavaan Marlie and Clinton Davids, are each serving a 28 year sentence.
