johannesburg - The South African public prosecutor wants the paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius quickly his new prison sentence for murder be serving. Local media reported Friday that must be conducted under house arrest placed South African next week before the court to get a heavier prison sentence. His lawyers are trying for that time to arrange a bail so that their client next week does not go straight back into the cell.
The news about the fate of Pistorius come a day after he was convicted in Bloemfontein of killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. A previous court ruling that he was only guilty of manslaughter, was thus rejected, as the relatively light sentence of five years in prison.
Pistorius shoots his girlfriend Steenkamp in February 2013 through a door over death. He is known to have shot, but said he thought there was a burglar. He was acquitted of murder in the first instance. Justice appealed against. On state murder in South Africa certainly fifteen years in prison.
