The early release of Shabir Shaik on medical parole probably served no other useful purpose than to reveal the shaky foundations on which the South African parole system operates. The questions that subsequently arose on the parole positions of Clive Derby-Lewis and Jackie Selebi also did not assist to dispel the perception that the system seems to be operating arbitrarily and in favour of those with friends in high places. This perception is not addressed directly in Parole in South Africa by Moses, probably because the book was not written from a political angle. The handbook is based on the author's PhD thesis Parole in South Africa Is it a Right or a Privilege? The Theory and Practice of Parole in South African Correctional Centres, with a Specific Focus on the Nature of Parole under the Correctional Services Act 8 of 1959 (Repealed) and the Current Correctional Services Act 111 of 1998 (2009 UCT).
