Full judgment: Janusz Walus’ parole bid

The North Gauteng High Court last week handed down the judgment that Janusz Walus, the man who assassinated South African Communist Party leader Chris Hani in 1993, be released on parole.

Walus was convicted of murder and sentenced to death in 1993, but following the abolishing of the death penalty in 1995, the sentence was commuted to life imprisonment.

The 60-year-old was in prison for 23 years.

He will be released on parole next week.
