Listen to article

South Africa’s Oscar Pistorius will not be released on parole this Friday because the decision to release him was made prematurely and without any legal basis, the justice minister said on Wednesday.

Pistorius, 29, was expected to be released after serving 10 months of a five-year sentence for killing his model and law graduate girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day 2013.
