State appeals Pistorius sentence
Oscar Pistorius’s legal team is opposing the state’s application for leave to appeal his sentence.
Pistorius is currently serving a six-year prison term for killing his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.
The State has described the sentence as shockingly lenient.
According to the lawyers the state’s appeal application is unfair and not in the interest of justice.
The Supreme Court of Appeal found Pistorius guilty of murder, overturning his earlier conviction of culpable homicide.
