The parole board” will be considering OscarPistorius ‘ profile on Friday, November 24, 2023,” according to a statement released on Monday.
The board added that if parole is granted, it will “determine whether the inmate is suitable for social reintegration” and set a release date.
Pistorius’ initial request for parole was denied in March because the Department of Correctional Services claimed he had n’t served the necessary amount of time in detention before being released.
After serving half of their sentence, South African prisoners are automatically eligible for parole consideration.
Pistorius began his term in 2014 and was believed to have completed more than half of it.
Authorities determined their count from his most recent conviction, which was less than half, after pursuing several appeals of his initial conviction.
Last month, the Constitutional Court overruled that the count must begin on the day that an inmate was first sentenced to prison.
Early on Valentine’s Day 2013, Pistorius killed Reeva Steenkamp, a model, by shooting four times through the bathroom door of his ultra-secure Pretoria home.
Pistorius, also known as the” Blade Runner” due to his carbon-fiber prosthetics, became the first double amputee to compete in the 2012 London Olympics.
He had pleaded not guilty and denied killing Steenkamp in a fit of rage when he was arrested in the early hours of February 2013.
He was found guilty of manslaughter for the first time in 2014 and given a televised trial for five years.
He was found guilty in 2016 and given a 13-year prison term in 2017 after public prosecutors appealed the ruling that called for the reclassification of murder and more severe punishment.
