[Photo/Agencies]JOHANNESBURG – Oscar Pistorius, South Africas “Blade Runner”, was released on parole on Monday, just short of a year into his five-year sentence for killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.But the disgraced Paralympic gold medallist must serve the rest of his sentence under house arrest, and still has to face an appeal by prosecutors who argue that he should have been convicted of murder rather than culpable homicide.Pistorius, 28, who was found guilty of the lesser charge when he fired four shots through a locked bathroom door and hit Steenkamp, will be confined to his uncle Arnolds home in a wealthy suburb of the capital Pretoria.The athlete, whose lower legs were amputated when he was a baby, will be freed in line with South African sentencing guidelines that say non-dangerous prisoners should spend only one-sixth of a custodial sentence behind bars.The department of correctional services said Pistorius parole conditions include that the gun enthusiast must undergo psychotherapy and is not allowed to possess a gun.Africas most advanced economy has one of the worlds highest rates of violent crime.”He might not have been found guilty of murder, but it was yet another instance of a South African woman killed by an intimate partner, and I dont believe the time he spent in prison reflects the severity either of his crime or the epidemic of violence against women,” said Louise Ferreira, a feminist.Previous Page1 2 Next PagePrevious Page1 2 Next Page8.03KRelated StoriesOscar Pistorius to be released on parole on TuesdayPistorius to be released on parole in August: family memberOscar Pistorius: Trial continuesProsecutor seeks appeal in Pistorius caseS African prosecutor seeks appeal in Pistorius casePhotoPyeongchang Winter Olympics torch relay kicks offTokyo marks 1,000 days until 2020 Olympic GamesFed Express eclipses his old foe Rafa againChinese sprinter Su Bingtian and wife hold wedding ceremony in hometownLi Na tastes local delicacy during WTA Wuhan OpenPlayer party held for 2017 WTA Wuhan OpenMost PopularWhats HotNational Youth Games gives big boost to FujianHighlightsMurray, Djokovic into Shanghai Masters third roundHornets sees second straight win in NBA Global GamesJordans rules still in play in ChinaFederer knocked out in Shanghai openerSpecialShanghai Rolex MastersIAAF World Championships Beijing 2015Beijing wins 2022 Winter Games bidLi Na retires from tennis…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
