Reeva’s mother won’t oppose parole for Oscar Pistorius this time

# June Steenkamp won’t oppose Oscar Pistorius’s bid for freedom when her daughter’s murderer appears before a Correctional Services Parole Board on Friday. When the former Paralympian champion applied for parole earlier this year, Steenkamp travelled to Pretoria for the hearing. Her legal representative, Tania Koen, says this time, a lawyer will read her victim impact report during the session. Pistorius has already served more than half of his sentence of 13 years and five months for murdering his girlfriend in his Pretoria home in 2013.
