OSCAR PISTORIUS TO BE PLACED ON 20 OCTOBER 2015
The Kgosi Mampuru II Correctional Supervision and Parole Board (CSPB) today, 15 October 2015, approved the placement of offender Oscar Pistorius under correctional supervision as from 20 October 2015.
The parole board met in Pretoria for the second time following a directive of the Parole Review Board, which set aside its earlier decision to place Oscar Pistorius under correctional supervision because it was prematurely made.
The parole board considered all submissions, including the offender’s profile report, the directives of the Parole Review Board and the submission of the victim’s family. The Kgosi Mampuru II CSPB says: “Upon careful consideration of the facts placed before the Parole Board as contained in the G326 (Profile Report) submitted by the Case Management Committee in terms of Section 42 (2)/* 79 of the Correctional Services Act of 1998, the Parole Board decided to place Mr. Oscar Pistorius under correctional supervision as from 2015/10/20 until 2019/10/20.”
The Parole Board has also given the offender his correctional supervision conditions which include the directives of the Parole Review Board in respect of continued psychotherapy and prohibitions in line with the Fire Arms Control Act Section 103.
