Walus’s Appeal Dismissed by High Court

Leonie Pretorius

14 April 2016

The High Court in Pretoria has dismissed the state's bid for leave to appeal Janusz Walus' parole.

 Justice Minister Masutha had approached the court arguing that it erred in its judgment when it ruled that South African Communist Party leader Chris Hani's killer should be granted parole.

 Earlier this year, Masutha set aside the medical parole board's decision to grant Walus parole and called for further dialogue with the SACP and Hani's family.

Hani's wife Limpho previously objected to Walus being freed on parole saying he should tell the truth.

 Hani was gunned down at his Boksburg home in April 1993.

The Polish immigrant has served 23 years of a life imprisonment for killing of the SACP leader in 1993.
