Pistorius parole hearing ‘a traumatic experience’

The parole hearing for former Paralympics star and convicted murderer Oscar Pistorius is “a very traumatic experience” for the parents of Reeva Steenkamp, their lawyer has said.

“It’s painful June [Steenkamp] has to face Oscar Pistorius again this morning. He’s the killer of her daughter. For them it’s a life sentence,” lawyer Tania Koen told reporters on Friday while on her way to Atteridgeville prison.

Pistorius is eligible for parole after serving half of his 13-year sentence for murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in 2013.

Ms Koen said:

Quote Message: They [Steenkamps] don’t feel that he should be released. They feel that he has shown no remorse, is not rehabilitated. Because if he had been, he would have come clean and told the true story of what happened that night.”

Quote Message: They’re absolutely still grieving, as you say 10 years to us, it sounds so long in time, but for them, it’s 10 missed birthdays, it’s 10 Mother’s Days, Father’s Days, Christmases, so time hasn’t healed for them. They’ve learned to an extent to get used to the idea of her not being there. But they miss it every day.”
