Oscar Pistorius Denied Parole


Oscar Pistorius, a former Paralympics star and convicted murderer, has lost his parole hearing to be released from prison early after killing his girlfriend and will remain locked up.

He has so far served half of his 13-year sentence for murdering his then-girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentines Day in 2013 and was hoping to be freed from prison today.

However Pistorius, now aged 36, lost his appeal and correctional services confirmed his parole has been denied.

It said the inmate did not complete the minimum Detention Period as ruled by the Supreme Court of Appeal and he will be able to reapply for parole in another year.

Before the hearing, Reeva’s mother June said Pistorius was “not remorseful or rehabilitated.”

Pistorius shot Reeva, his girlfriend of two months, four times, through a locked bathroom door with the 9mm pistol he kept under his bed.
