Pistorious To Leave Prison 20 October

The blade runner and Paralympic star Oscar Pistorius, who killed his girlfriend will be released from jail on Tuesday.

According to reports, his release would mark 12 months since he was sentenced for murdering his girlfriend, Reeva Steekamp.

Pistorius, 28, was jailed on 21 October last year for shooting dead Reeva at his home in South Africa on Valentine’s Day 2013.

Pistorius had told the court the shooting was a mistake after he had mistook her for an intruder.

After six months of trial, the Court found him not guilty of murder but guilty of culpable homicide.

He was due to leave prison on August 21 but Justice Minister Michael Masutha unexpectedly stepped in to halt the move, saying the parole board had acted prematurely.
