Oscar Pistorius

The National Prosecuting Authority is to appeal Oscar Pistorius’ six-year murder sentence.

Earlier this month, Judge Thokozile Masipa sentenced the former paralympian to six years behind bars for murdering his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, at his Pretoria home in February 2013.

“June and Barry have got no input in the decision of the state to appeal. That is a decision that is taken by the state. But of course having said that June and Barry have always fully supported Gerry Nel and his team and their fight for justice for their daughter, Reeva,” says Steenkamp family spokesperson, Tanya Coen.
