The South African Prosecutor wants to appeal against the sentence of former paralympic runner Oscar Pistorius. It makes Friday a request for appeal to the supreme court.

The well-known ‘bladerunner’ was sentenced to six years in prison for the murder of his girlfriend, model Reeva Steenkamp.

The Public Ministry was did not agree and asked for an appeal. This was by a court to be rejected, because they doubted whether a different judge to increase a sentence would come. Against that refusal the court enters the ORDER now in appeal.

It had been fifteen years, required, in part because Pistorius has no remorse. The athlete fired on February 14, 2013 four shots through the door of the bathroom in his house, in his own words because he thought a burglar was behind it. His girlfriend was struck and died shortly afterwards.
