Justice not served, say Steenkamp's parents
September 13 , 2014
Reeva Steenkamp’s parents have said that “justice was not served” after Oscar Pistorius, the star South African athlete, was acquitted of murdering her.
The Paralympic sprinter was, however, found guilty of culpable homicide, with Judge Thokozile Masipa stating that the prosecution had failed to prove that he intended to kill Steenkamp, his girlfriend.
Pistorius faces up to 15 years in jail.
June and Barry Steenkamp told NBC that their reaction to the verdict was one of “disbelief”.
