Review board 'has four months to finalise Pistorius ruling'

The South African review board has four months to finalise a ruling which would have allowed Oscar Pistorius to be released from prison on house arrest, a government spokesman has said.

Paralympic champion Pistorius had been expected to be released tomorrow after serving 10 months of his five-year sentence behind bars.

A decision from Justice Minister Michael Masutha to delay Pistorius' release followed substantial controversy over the parole board's prior approval, which he described as having been made too soon and "without any legal basis".
