“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”, said Arnold Pistorius, uncle of Oscar Pistorius and family spokesperson, this afternoon.
Magistrate Desmond Nair closed off the day’s proceedings in the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court without an indication whether Oscar Pistorius would be granted bail or not.
“We are strong and supportive as a family, for Oscar, but we understand that this is in the best interest for all,” said Arnold Pistorius.
“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”.
The bail hearing will continue tomorrow.
