Several activists and organisations are calling for releasing one of South Africa's most notorious serial killers, Norman "Afzal" Simons. He was sentenced to life imprisonment in 1995 after the bodies of 22 young boys in shallow graves were discovered on the Cape Flats between 1986 and 1994. But he was only convicted of the kidnapping and murder of one of the boys, ten-year-old Elroy van Rooyen. After serving 28 years of his life sentence, crime fighters, activists, and the SA Human Rights Commission are calling for his release. According to Commissioner Chris Nissen, who spoke with Radio Islam International, many activists and organisations are not demanding the release of the notorious serial killer but asking that he be allowed to exercise his right to parole with the condition that he confesses to the victim's families to allow them closure for their children's death.
