Oscar Pistorius is expected to be granted permission to leave jail in order to attend the funeral of his grandmother later this week.
The athlete, a six-time Paralympic champion, was sentenced to five years in jail in South Africa in 2014 for shooting dead his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp the previous year.
He was released after serving less than a year of his sentence in October 2015, but prosecutors successfully upgraded his conviction to murder which led to a six-year punishment.
The 30-year-old is expected to be granted “compassionate leave” to attend a memorial for his maternal grandmother Joyce Bekker after her death aged 93 last week.
According to the Daily Mail, Pistorius is considered sufficiently “low-risk” to be permitted to leave by prison bosses.
