JOHANNESBURG - Reeva Steenkamp's parents say they have nothing more to contribute to Oscar Pistorius's parole board hearings and are satisfied that their previous submissions are enough.

The parole board postponed the matter until next Thursday to allow Steenkamp's parents to make further submissions.

Pistorius is serving a five-year sentence for killing Steenkamp two years ago, but is no eligible to be placed under correctional supervision.

Barry and June Steenkamp's attorney Tania Koen says nothing has changed for the couple since their submission at Pistorius's hearing in June.

"They just want justice to take its course. We will not be making any further submissions. The original submission that we made to the parole board, we will resubmit."

The Steenkamps at the time said they believed 10 months was not an appropriate sentence for someone who had taken a life.

While the Pistorius family were unhappy with the review decision earlier this week, they have not yet reacted to this latest development.
