Dept of correctional services spokesperson Manelisi Wolela said:
"They considered all factors; the submission, the profile of the offender, the submission of the family of the victim, as well as the recommendations of the parole review board, and took a decision that - with effect from the 20th of October - Oscar Pistorius will be placed under correctional supervision in his own community. From that date up to the time that he finishes his sentence."Wolela says Pistorius will be not be allowed to have firearms and must undergo psychotherapy. He was found guilty of culpable homicide, when he fired four shots through a locked bathroom door, thinking Steenkamp was actually an intruder. South Africans say they support the decision.
