PRETORIA - There appears to be some confusion as to whether Oscar Pistorius does indeed have to present himself at the Brooklyn police station.

Eyewitness News has been told by a National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) official that it was not a requirement of bail.

It appears Chief Magistrate Desmond Nair did not include a reporting condition in his ruling on Pistorius's bail.

While the state and the defence agreed that Pistorius should report twice a week to the Brooklyn Police Station, it's not included in the final order.

Police officials have also been trying to establish the details of the order from the prosecuting authority.

Pistorius's uncle Arnold was earlier spotted driving past the police station.

Arnold is housing the murder accused at his Waterkloof home, as Pistorius was barred by Magistrate Desmond Nair from returning to the crime scene.

A large media contingent has gathered at the entrance since early this morning, waiting for the so-called Blade Runner.

The Pretoria Magistrates Court released the athlete on R1 million bail on Friday.

He killed his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp at his Pretoria home on Valentine’s Day after he allegedly mistook her for an intruder.
