Cape Town - Former Hard Livings gang leader Rashied Staggie's parole has been revoked, Correctional Services said on Thursday.
“The department of correctional services... wishes to confirm that offender Staggie, who is on day-parole, was taken back this morning from his employer and is currently incarcerated at the Pollsmoor Correctional Centre,” said spokesman Manelisi Wolela.
“We believe he violated his parole conditions,” said Wolela.
He said the matter was under investigation and normal procedures and processes would be followed, including his appearance before the Case Management Committee and the Correctional Supervision and Parole Board.
Staggie was sentenced in 2003 to 15 years in prison on charges of kidnapping and rape, and in 2004, he received another 13 years for gun theft from a police armoury.
The sentences ran concurrently and he served 11 years before his release on day parole in September. - Sapa
