Vanderbijlpark - Murder accused paralympian Oscar Pistorius's brother Carl arrived at the Vanderbijlpark Magistrate's Court on Wednesday ahead of his appearance on culpable homicide charges.

The charges relate to an accident in 2008 that led to the death of a 36-year-old woman.

At 08:15, Carl Pistorius, dressed in a neat black suit and white shirt, entered courtroom J and went to speak to his lawyers. He went to sit in the public gallery and greeted journalists.

A short while later his sister Aimee arrived. The siblings hugged each other and asked the journalists standing nearby if they could have a private moment.

Reporters left the front row of the public gallery after Aimee Pistorius indicated that more relatives would be attending proceedings. Photographers and cameramen and women took images of the family as Carl sat perusing documents.

Magistrate Buks du Plessis indicated he would first make a ruling on the presense of the media in the court.

In a statement last month, Pistorius family attorney Kenny Oldwage said after the accident culpable homicide charges were brought against Carl Pistorius. The State later withdrew them, but the National Prosecuting Authority had them reinstated.

Oldwage said the charge would be challenged in court.

Carl's appearance comes a day before Oscar Pistorius is expected to challenge the bail conditions the Pretoria Magistrate's Court imposed on him.

The court granted Pistorius bail of R1m on 22 February after he was charged with the murder of his girlfriend, law graduate and model Reeva Steenkamp in his Pretoria home on 14 February.

Oldwage was present in court.

Proceedings are expected to start at 09:00.
