Pistorius to wait another two weeks before learning fate
The Parole Review Board will meet in two weeks’ time to decide on whether to release the Blade Runner.
JOHANNESBURG - The Department of Correctional Services has confirmed Oscar Pistorius will have to wait another two weeks to hear the Parole Review Board's decision on whether he should be released from prison.
It is believed the panel convened at a Durban correctional facility on Friday, but was unable to complete its work and has now decided to postpone the matter for two weeks.
Justice Minister Michael Masutha said last month that he believed the decision to release the athlete was made prematurely.
Pistorius is serving a five year sentence for killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on 14 February 2013.
Correctional Services spokesperson Manelisi Wolela says. "We can confirm the Parole Review Board met to consider reviews, but unfortunately could not finish the role and had to postpone for two weeks because that's the earliest possible date for members to be available."
