Oscar Pistorius' family have issued a statement this evening, saying that it is a "unique, emotional and difficult time" for them.
Arnold Pistorius, uncle of Oscar Pistorius, said:
Oscar Pistorius and his family fully respect the bail hearing process and the sequence of events leading up to this point. They understand it is in the full interest of justice that the process associated with the bail application be followed in its entirety.
We are strong and supportive as a family, for Oscar, but we understand that this is in the best interest for all.
This is a unique, emotional and difficult time for us all. Our hearts and thoughts are with the family of Reeva Steenkamp during their time of bereavement.
