The Social Justice Coalition (SJC) wants the SA Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) to join its court bid for a review of how Schabir Shaik was released on medical parole.

The coalition says it wrote to Correctional Services Minister Ngconde Balfour almost two weeks ago and asked him to institute a high court review of the grounds on which Shaik was released.

They also want an independent panel of medical experts nominated by the SAHRC and the Judicial Inspectorate of Prisons to examine Shaik and submit reports to the court.
