Oscar Pistorius

Oscar Pistorius will be released on probation by 21 August after a recommendation from South Africa’s correctional services department. The Olympic athlete was jailed for five years in 2014 for the culpable homicide of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. Under South African law he is eligible for release under “correctional supervision” having served a sixth of his sentence. A state appeal against his acquittal on murder charges is due in November.
