Prosecutors want Pistorius in court by Tuesday
EWN however understands the North Gauteng judge president must still approve a warrant for his arrest.
PRETORIA - Eyewitness News understands prosecutors want Oscar Pistorius in court on Tuesday, but the North Gauteng judge president must still approve a warrant for his arrest.
When the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) in Bloemfontein set aside the athlete's culpable homicide conviction on Thursday, it also set aside his sentence.
Pistorius has now been convicted of murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day almost three year years ago, and must now apply for bail.
A National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) official close to the matter has told EWN that while attempts have been made to secure a warrant of arrest for Pistorius the document has not yet been signed off.
Prosecutor Gerrie Nel and defence advocate Barry Roux have however been in talks to reach an agreement for Pistorius to voluntarily surrender himself to a court.
This is expected to happen on Tuesday, when Pistorius will apply for bail.
It's understood the state won't oppose the application if the defence agrees to stringent conditions imposed on his movement, similar to the terms of his house arrest, which has now fallen away.
The state hopes to set down a date in the second quarter of next year, to hear sentencing arguments.
