Du Preez's lawyers made the application in the High Court in Pretoria on Tuesday.

This came after Du Preez and Christoff Becker's parole was revoked when a video emerged of the pair allegedly drinking alcohol and using a cellphone at the Kgosi Mampuru prison.

The Waterkloof Four - Du Preez, Becker, Gert van Schalkwyk and Reinach Tiedt - were released on bail on February 11 after being jailed for beating a homeless man to death in Pretoria in 2001.

But Becker and Du Preez were sent back to prison on February 28.

Becker recently made a similar application but the court argued that it was not an urgent matter.

Judge Eberhard Bertelsmann will hand down judgment on Thursday. - Sapa
