Bloom, Goldin killers again denied parole

2012-07-04 22:32

Johannesburg - Convicted murderers Jade Wyngaard and Nurshad Davids were refused parole on Wednesday at the Drakenstein prison in the Western Cape.

The two were found guilty of the murder of actor Brett Goldin and his fashion designer friend Richard Bloom.

Goldin and Bloom were hijacked, robbed and then shot in the head in Mowbray, Cape Town in 2006 after they had left a party in the Camps Bay area.

The killers were each jailed for 12 years and have so far served six years.

Western Cape correctional services spokesperson Simphiwe Xaku said Wyngaard and Davids would have another opportunity to seek parole in July next year.

"Their application to be granted parole was dismissed on Wednesday. The new corrections services act requires that they appear once a year before the parole board; [it's] standard procedure."

This was the second time Wyngaard and Davids were denied parole. Their first attempt was in November last year.

    Hope they catch the bug and die inside. They deserve no better.

    Murder should carry a life sentence, not negotiable. How can they even consider parole after only 6 short years? Parole must never be an option for these criminals. They brutally killed two innocent people, who's to say they won't do it again? They deserve to rot and die in prison.

    They deserve to rot in prison for what they did.

    For God's sake throw away the key and let the swines rot!

    Funny, they did a documentary of this brutal, heinous crime on M-Net last night. After watching it I cannot see why these animals should even be considered for parole. They shouldn't even be alive wasting taxpayer's money. BRING BACK THE NOOSE!

    the law in this country favours the criminal because he knows that he will only spend a short time in prison,that is why many crimes are committed by ex-cons unlike overseas where if u kill someone u leaving prison in a body bag

    I agree with everything being said here, but this headline is misleading, these 2 were sentenced for robbery not murder, they were not there when the murder took place. The 2 that actually commited the murder are only eligible for parole in 2020.

      Hayden - who were the two murders then? What are their names? What was their sentence? These two were accessories and should suffer the same fate.

    If you murder my family or anyone close and receive parole, I will sentence the bastards again for real.

  • mmatzener - 2012-07-05 10:52

    Twelve years for premeditated cruel murders?...... what were the mitigating circumstances....? But please - let them out and send them to Kayalitsha for some mob justice....!!!

      Like I said, I agree with all the comments, I'm just saying these 2 guys were sentenced for armed robbery and kidnapping but were not present when the murder happened, the 2 guys that actually commited the murder were sentenced to much longer terms, Clinton Davids and Shavaan Marlie were sentenced for murder, not sure what their exact sentence is but I know they due for parole in 2020. I believe they should all be hung. I'm just saying the headline is inaccurate as these guys didnt murder (they were part of the whole situation though).
