Oscar Pistorius will know his fate soon

# Former Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius will know his fate two days after his 37th birthday as the parole board is expected to determine a date for his release next week Friday. The Constitutional Court in October found that he already served the minimum sentence for murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day in 2013.  The court also instructed that his sentence be backdated to July 2016. The Department of Correctional Services at the time of Pistorius’ appeal to the Constitutional Court admitted that in March this year, he had already served his minimum sentence.
