Johannesburg - The justice and correctional services department has until the end of this week to decide on Clive Derby-Lewis's medical parole application or his lawyers will take the matter to the High Court, The Citizen reported on Wednesday.

Derby-Lewis's lawyer Marius Coertze said it had been month since they applied for the parole.

"If we have not heard from them by the end of the week we will assume that they are dragging their feet... we will bring a new application to the High Court, like De Kock."

Eugene de Kock approached the High Court in May for an order to force new minister Michael Masutha to make a decision, within 30 days after previous minister Sbu Ndebele had not.

Coertze said his client had six months to live due to an aggressive lung cancer.

Derby-Lewis was convicted of killing SA Communist Party secretary general Chris Hani in the driveway of his Boksburg home on 10 April 1993, with his accomplice Janusz Walus.

The 78-year-old former Conservative Party MP, who was sentenced to 25 years behind bars, has already served more than 20 years of his sentence.
