The parole application for the former Vlakplaas commander Eugene de Kock has been denied.

The Beeld reported that the correctional services department would reconsider the application in 2014.

De Kock has served 17 years from his two life sentences plus 212 years sentence after being found guilty on 89 charges including murder, attempted murder and conspiracy.

"The minister decided last week that he would reconsider the [De Kock's] application in a year's time," he reportedly said.

The department's deputy head commissioner James Smalberger told the newspaper Minister Sbu Ndebele reached his decision after considered advice from National Council for Correctional Services chairman Siraj Desai and two other judges,

De Kock is one of the 348 parole applications that Ndebele has been considering since December last year.
