The Department of Correctional services continues to give imprisoned Durban businessman Schabir Shaik preferential treatment.
The director of the South African Prisoners Organisation for Human Rights (Sapohr), Golden Miles Bhudu says that Shaik has been at the Albert Luthuli hospital for 25 days, and that he was not being treated like a prisoner.
The public relations officer for the Albert Luthuli Hospital, john Thusi, confirmed that shaik was still at the hospital, but he could not comment because that was a private and confidential matter.
Shaik is said to be suffering from hypertension.
Correctional Services was not available for comment.
