Pretoria - The legal team for paralympian Oscar Pistorius is considering approaching the North Gauteng High Court to ask for the star athlete’s bail conditions to be eased, according to a report.

Pistorius was granted R1m bail on Friday after he was arrested for murder following the shooting death of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, at his home on 14 February.

Pistorius's lawyer, Kenny Oldwage, told The Times that they were considering their options.

"I have no comment on that at the present moment, unfortunately. We are still considering our position and this is really as much as I can say right now."

Oldwage wouldn’t say which of the bail conditions would be addressed.

After spending eight days in police holding cells, Pistorius spent his first weekend of freedom with his family in Pretoria East.

Pistorius's bail conditions stipulate that he is not allowed to return to his home (the scene of the crime), may not touch alcohol or drugs, and is subject to constant supervision.

He is in constant contact with his court-appointed officer to assess his state of mind.

Journalists and photographers spent the weekend camped outside the house of his uncle, Arnold Pistorius.

Pistorius is expected to report to the Brooklyn police station on Monday as part of his bail conditions.
