Pretoria – The judgment in the appeal against a court ruling that Janusz Walus, the Polish immigrant who assassinated SACP leader Chris Hani, be released on parole is expected to be made on Thursday.

The Minister of Justice and Correctional Services, Michael Masutha, applied for leave to appeal the judgment which ordered the release of Walus, with the matter getting under way on Tuesday.

Just two days after the 23rd anniversary of Hani's assassination, the application was filed, resulting in a vocal outcry by Hani's widow, Limpho, who expressed her unhappiness with the decision to release her husband's killer on parole.
