Oscar Pistorius Set to Be Released on Parole: Correctional Services Confirms


The Correctional Services Department has officially announced that convicted murderer Oscar Pistorius will be released on parole, scheduled for this Friday. Pistorius will be under strict monitoring until the expiration of his sentence in 2029.

General parole conditions will be applicable to Pistorius during his release. These conditions include adherence to specific home hours, abstaining from alcohol or prohibited substances, and a prohibition on giving media interviews.

The former Paralympian’s impending release comes almost 11 years after he was convicted for the tragic killing of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, on Valentine’s Day. Pistorius’ case has been marked by intense public interest and legal proceedings, and his release on parole is expected to rekindle discussions surrounding the justice system and the rehabilitation of offenders.
