South Africa to appeal Pistorius six-year murder sentence - Radio 702
JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - The South African government will appeal Oscar Pistorius' six-year murder sentence, Talk Radio 702 said on Thursday.
The Paralympic gold medallist was sentenced to jail for six years in July for murdering his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, in 2013. At the time, some commentators described the jail term as lenient.
The radio report gave no further details.
