Pretoria - The North Gauteng High Court ruled on Monday that two of the so-called "Waterkloof Four" must return to prison, SABC News reported.

The court ordered that Reinach Tiedt and Gert van Schalkwyk not remain under correctional supervision.

A Pretoria magistrate converted Tiedt and Van Schalkwyk’s sentences to correctional supervision in December 2011, but this was reviewed.

The correctional services department argued that an amendment to the Correctional Services Act had been misinterpreted by the magistrate, who converted their sentences to correctional supervision, the broadcaster reported.

They had served three years and four months in jail.

Tiedt and Van Schalkwyk, together with Christoff Becker and Frikkie du Preez, each received 12 years in prison for murdering a man in a Pretoria park in 2001.

Tiedt and Van Schalkwyk were released in December 2011, after an order by magistrate Peet Johnson.

They were ordered to return to prison by 23 September while the matter is being reviewed.
