Pistorious release delayed….


Oscar Pistorius will not be released from prison on Friday as planned, after South Africa’s justice ministry announced its decision to review the decision. In a statement, the ministry said the decision to release Pistorius 10 months into his five-year sentence was made “prematurely” and with “no legal basis”. Pistorius was found guilty of culpable homicide in October last year after shooting dead his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. She would have celebrated her 32nd birthday on Wednesday. The decorated Paralympic athlete now looks set to stay in prison at least until the case has been looked over by South Africa’s correctional supervision and parole review board.
