Does anyone know if it's possible to be released early from prison in South Africa on health grounds?

If so, you can see where all the play acting is leading.

The appeal case for this is tomorrow although there is next to no news regarding it.

Hopefully they will slap another 10 years on the lying murderer.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3791161/South-African-prosecutors-launch-fresh-bid-increase-Oscar-Pistorius-jail-term-killing-Reeva-Steenkamp.html

Prosecutors today announced yet another legal fight to get a longer sentence for Blade Runner murderer Oscar Pistorius, which a source close to the athlete predicted ‘could backfire and Oscar could be out sooner’.
South African state lawyers will file papers tomorrow (Friday) in their third challenge in the case of the shamed track star and his ‘shockingly lenient sentence’.
A confidant of Pistorius', who reportedly attempted suicide last month, said his supporters ‘welcomed’ the petition against the runner’s six year punishment.


In July this year, Pistorius was jailed for six years for murdering girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp
The move follows last month’s failed bid by prosecutor Gerrie Nel to win leave to appeal the paralympian’s sentence, which was immediately thrown out by Pistorius’ trial judge, Thokozile Masipa.
He could have been jailed for life, and Judge Masipa's sentence sparked outrage on July 6 this year.
Now Mr Nel, known as ‘the pitbull’ for his tenacious legal style, is taking the matter directly to the Supreme Court of Appeal.
A source who knows Pistorius and his family well, told MailOnline how they were convinced that Mr Nel ‘was pursuing a personal vendetta’ against Pistorius, after originally failing to secure a murder conviction at his trial.
‘Gerrie Nel will never let this matter rest, he has a point to prove and he is just going to go on and on until he feels he makes it,’ the source said.
‘He has lost his sense of perspective, he is no longer acting in a dispassionate way, it is clearly a personal vendetta against Oscar.
‘But we think it could actually backfire against the state now. The Supreme Court of Appeal judges won’t do anything with the sentence to make it longer, they could actually make it shorter and Oscar could be out sooner. We feel relaxed about it, justice will take its course.’

Judge Thokozile Masipa sentenced Oscar Pistorius to six years in prison for murder - a sentence which was branded 'shockingly light'
The double amputee, whose paralympics sprinting record was beaten in Rio this week, murdered Reeva Steenkamp at his home in the South African capital, on Valentine’s Day 2013.
He is expected to be eligible to serve some of his sentence under house arrest at his uncle’s comfortable mansion after serving just two years behind bars.
Mr Nel believes Judge Masipa ‘misdirected herself in law by handing down a punishment that was less than half of South Africa’s prescribed minimum 15-year sentence for murder, resulting in a punishment which ‘induces a sense of shock’.

Pistorius is keeping himself busy with his studies and reading the Bible in prison, a close associate has revealed
Pistorius, who was treated for injuries to his wrists in August in what prison sources claimed was a self-harming incident in his cell, is said to be ‘studying hard’ as he languishes on the hospital wing at Kgosi Mampuru high security jail.
The one time sporting icon is studying business and law via correspondence with a British university.
‘He is keeping himself very busy with this studies and is also taking the time to learn more about his Maker and reading the Bible,’ his close contact revealed.

Pistorius' family has denied that he attempted to take his own life while in prison
‘He is quite calm, he knows where he is, he has his routine, he is managing himself better and better.’
Pistorius and his family are adamant that the injuries he incurred to his arms, described by prison sources as an attempt on his own life, came after he slipped on the wet floor of his cell as he moved about on his stumps.
The latest challenge follows two earlier objections to Judge Masipa, who received death threats after clearing Pistorius of his lover’s murder.

Prosecutor Gerrie Nel said the judge's starting point should have been a 15 year jail sentence for Pistorius
The state first appealed her finding that Pistorius was guilty of manslaughter, for which she sentenced him for five years in jail.
Last year, the judge’s manslaughter verdict was overturned on appeal – but when Pistorius appeared again in her court for sentencing for the more serious crime, Judge Masipa increased his term by just one more year, sparking international outrage.
