Oscar Pistorius, South African Paralympic Champion, Seeks Fresh Parole 10 Years after Girlfriend’s Death

The South African Paralympian Oscar Pistorius is seeking early release through a parole board after being sentenced to 13 years for murdering his girlfriend. Pistorius, who became known as the “Blade Runner” for his carbon-fibre prosthetics, has previously been denied parole but is now hoping for a different outcome. He has already met with his victim’s parents as part of his rehabilitation process, but they have opposed his release, saying they don’t believe his account of the crime. The decision on his release will be based on an assessment of his rehabilitation and behavior in prison. If released, he will likely have to adhere to certain conditions and reporting requirements.
