Life-term inmates get parole?

Quote:
More than 300 prisoners sentenced to life behind bars and who had served 15 years could be considered for parole, the SABC reported on Thursday.
This emerged at a high-level meeting between correctional services authorities, parole officials and some judges. The move was an attempt to curb overcrowding in prisons.
"Some people will not be released for whatever length of time they have served, until they no longer constitute a danger to society... people with very serious cases of murder and child rape," said Desai.
