Media camp at police station

Media camped outside the Brooklyn Police Station in Pretoria in the hopes of spotting Oscar Pistorius. See all the pictures.

Pretoria - There seems to be some confusion as to whether Oscar Pistorius does indeed have to present himself at the Brooklyn police station, a report said on Monday.

Eyewitness News said it had been told by a National Prosecuting Authority official that it was not a requirement of bail.

Despite the State and defence agreeing that the paralympian should present himself at the police station, this is not specified in Pistorius’s bail order.

Police officials have also been trying to establish the details of the order from the prosecuting authority, EWN said.

Arnold Pistorius, the sprinter’s uncle, was however spotted driving past the police station earlier on Monday.

A large media contingent consisting of local and international reporters has gathered outside the police station.

Pistorius was released on R1m bail on Friday.

He has been charged with murder after killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp at his Pretoria home on Valentine’s Day.
