CAPE TOWN - The correctional services department says the two men implicated in the murders of actor Brett Goldin and his friend Richard Bloom were model inmates, who participated in rehabilitation programmes.

Convicts Jade Wyngaard and Nurshad Davids were released on parole on Wednesday after serving two-thirds of their 12-year sentence for robbery, kidnapping and the possession of an unlicensed firearm.

Goldin and Bloom were gunned down in Cape Town in 2006.

Goldin's mother Denise says the parole process was transparent.

"We were involved, the Bloom family and myself. The parole board were actually very decent with us and good to deal with. We were involved right from the beginning and there was good communication between us."

Wyngaard and Davids have certain restrictions imposed on their parole and will be under house arrest.

Meanwhile, the two men convicted of murdering Bloom and Goldin, Shavaan Marlie and Clinton Davids, are each serving a 28 year sentence.
