South African Paralympian Oscar Pistorius will remain in jail after the parole review board delayed the decision to release and place him under house arrest on Monday.
Local media quoted attorney Brian Webber, one of Pistorius’s legal representatives, confirming the new development.
Webber reportedly said the matter will now be referred back to the parole board of the Pretoria prison where Pistorius is currently being held.
Pistorius was supposed to have been released from prison last month after serving 10 months of his five-year jail term but Justice Minister Michael Masutha blocked the release.
The minister said the Pretoria prison's parole board had made the decision to release him prematurely as he had not served a sixth of his sentence.
