Johannesburg - A lawyer for Oscar Pistorius says his appeal against bail conditions will be heard on Thursday, a day after the culpable homicide trial of older brother Carl begins in another Johannesburg court.

Advocate Kenny Oldwadge tells AP that they have confirmation from Pretoria's North Gauteng High Court that the appeal is scheduled for 28 March.

The Olympic athlete, charged with murder in the shooting death of Reeva Steenkamp, is challenging travel restrictions and having to report twice a week to a police station, among other conditions.

Oldwadge and prosecutors say Pistorius is not required to appear in court.

Carl Pistorius' trial is set for Wednesday and Thursday at a court south of Johannesburg.

He was charged in the death of a woman in a 2008 road collision.
