South Africa’s parole board has granted early release to Oscar Pistorius, the former athlete jailed for the 2013 murder of Reeva Steenkamp, who was his girlfriend.

Pistorius shot and killed Steenkamp, a law graduate and model, through a bathroom door in their shared home in Pretoria on Valentine’s Day 10 years ago. He claimed he thought there was an intruder in the bathroom when he opened fire.

He will be released on 5 January after a parole board deemed him fit for social reintegration, South Africa’s correctional services department said on Friday.

How annoying. That creep got a light sentence to begin with, and now he's been granted early release, the conditions of which are nowhere near enough. I can understand why Reeva Steenkamp's mother doesn't have the energy to face him again, but her response to the news was a lot more gracious than mine would have been.

10 years for murder?

What a joke. 

He should die in prison. Sub human garbage.

Not just 11 years but involving a gun crime too.

He is lucky he wasn`t in the US.

It was manslaughter and his achievements as a Paralympian should still be commended despite this tragedy.

It was murder and he should burn slowly.
