Spotlight on Clive Derby-Lewis’s hospital treatment
15 September 2011
Correctional Services has dismissed reports that convicted murderer Clive Derby-Lewis is being refused urgent hospital treatment.
Spokesperson Sibongile Khumalo says Derby-Lewis went to a private facility last year and he still prefers to use a private surgeon.
The right-wing leader was convicted for his part in the killing of Communist Party leader Chris Hani.
Khumalo added that Derby-Lewis’ family signed a document agreeing to bear the costs involved in private healthcare.
