It's 8 years since Schabir Shaik was released on medical parole after serving more than two years of a 15-year sentence for corruption.

The Democratic Alliance is calling on Justice Minister Michael Masutha to review Shaik's medical parole. Shaik was diagnosed with terminal illness at the time and said that he only had few days to live.

According to Dr Elizabeth Gwyther, CEO at Hospice Palliative Care Association, terminal illness means the patient is close to dying.
