Oscar Pistorius early release put on hold by SA ministry of Justice




Jailed athlete Oscar Pistorious was supposed to be released this Friday, August 21 but South Africa's justice ministry has suspended his release, saying the decision to free the athlete after serving only 10 months of his five-year sentence "was taken prematurely" and with "no legal basis".

The decision has now been sent back to the parole board for review and he will remain in prison pending that review. One of Pistorius' relatives, told Reuters news agency that they were "shocked and disappointed" at the news.
