Shaik 'violating parole'

2009-12-20 08:54
Cape Town - Convicted fraudster Schabir Shaik, who is out on medical parole for a terminal illness, allegedly violated his parole conditions this week and Rapport newspaper claims to have photographic evidence.

According to Rapport, Shaik this week got into his black BMW x6 at his house in Durban and visited an upmarket townhouse complex. He even went shopping and cursed a Rapport photographer who saw him.

On Tuesday, Shaik and a female companion were spotted by a Rapport photographer driving to The Essenwoods townhouse complex.

On Wednesday he went to his local Spar and came out with two cartons of milk and a newspaper. When he saw the Rapport photographer he got angry and used offensive language. Then he got into his car and raced away.

In an interview with Rapport, Shaik denied visiting the upmarket townhouse complex. He also said he went to a pharmacy and that he only stopped at the Spar to get some milk. However, the Rapport team only saw him stop at the Spar.

The Department of Correctional Services earlier said Shaik is allowed out of his home at specific times to do his shopping and other errands.

Shaik was released on medical parole on March 3 after serving two years and four months of a 15-year prison term for fraud and corruption.
