Carte Blanche on Oscar Pistorius

Carte Blanche spoke to Reeva's parents in PE, while Oscar was fighting for his freedom in Pretoria. Watch. VIEW

Pretoria - Scores of journalists milled outside the Brooklyn Police Station, east of Pretoria, on Monday morning, awaiting the arrival of paralympian Oscar Pistorius.

Pistorius was granted R1m bail on Friday in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court. As part of the bail conditions, he was ordered to report to the Brookyln Police Station twice a 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 14 February for the murder of his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp at his home.
