Oscar Pistorius let out of prison for four hours


Oscar Pistorius has been allowed out of prison for four hours to attend a family funeral.

The former athlete, who fatally shot his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in 2013, attended his grandmother’s funeral on Friday flanked by an elite security unit.

Gerti Pistorius was 92 when she died on 8 October, according to Netwerk24.

Manelisi Wolela, a spokesman for the Correctional Services Department, said Pistorius was given leave to attend the funeral as he was classified as a “low risk” offender.

Pistorius is serving a six-year jail term at the Kgosi Mampuru II jail in Pretoria.

The double amputee never denied shooting and killing Ms Steenkamp, a law graduate and model, at his home in Pretoria but always insisted he mistook her for an intruder when he fired four Black Talon bullets through the toilet door.

He says he realised his mistake when he broke down the door with a cricket bat, by which time it was too late.
