Media waits for Pistorius check-in at police station
Scores of journalists milled outside the Brooklyn Police Station, east of Pretoria, awaiting the arrival of paralympian Oscar Pistorius this morning.
Pistorius was granted R1 million bail on Friday in the Pretoria Magistrates’ Court. As part of the bail conditions, he was ordered to report to the Brookyln Police Station twice every week – on Mondays and Fridays.
News crews erected small tents and gazebos along Duxbury road, outside the police station. Passing motorists slowed down curiously with a few asking if Pistorius had already checked in.
The world-famous athlete was arrested on February 14 for the murder of his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp at his home.
