DA says Schabir Shaik got a slap on the wrist

Correctional Services has given President Jacob Zuma’s former financial adviser Schabir Shaik a formal warning after he admitted to violating his parole conditions.

A statement by Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula says further violations may result in a warrant of detention being issued, which could result in Shaiks’ re-incarceration. His parole conditions have also been tightened.

In its reaction, the Democratic Alliance has slammed Mapisa-Nqakula’s decision as a cop-out and a cover-up of note.

The DA’s James Selfe says it is becoming increasingly clear that there is nothing medically wrong with Shaik, and that there never was. Selfe adds that the decision to impose so-called “sanctions” on Shaik, involving little more than restricting his free time, constitutes a slap on the wrist.
