SOUTH Africa’s Supreme Court of Appeal will hear the state’s appeal against Paralympic gold medallist Oscar Pistorius’ six-year murder sentence on November 3, the National Prosecuting Authority says.
Oscar was sentenced to jail for six years in 2016 for murdering his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, on Valentine’s Day in 2013.
At the time, some commentators described the jail term as lenient.
