Last August he was taken to hospital with wrist injuries, which prison authorities said he sustained after falling in his cell.
Rumours of a heart attack were dismissed by prison representatives and family members.
Oscar Pistorius was rushed to hospital on Thursday (08.03.17) amid fears he was having a heart attack.
Reports said he was rushed from Atteridgeville Prison to the hospital's emergency department, escorted by armed guards.
Late last year Pistorius, who is serving a six-year prison sentence for the 2013 Valentine's Day murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, was moved from the Kgosi Mampuru II prison in Pretoria to the Atteridgeville Correctional Centre, also in Pretoria, because it has better facilities for disabled people. Maistry declined to comment on those reports.Читайте также: Iran claims successful rocket test
Earlier, it was reported that Pistorius would be released from the hospital and go back to prison today. A year ago he received treatments after he sustained cuts to his wrists, which he said were the result of a fall in his cell.
At the time of the conviction, Judge Lorimer Leach dismissed Pistorius' claim that he was acting in self-defence when he fired multiple shots through a bathroom door which ultimately killed his girlfriend.
Pistorius was convicted of murder in 2015 after an appeal by prosecutors against an initial manslaughter verdict. There is no death penalty in South Africa.
If the state's appeal to extend Pistorius' six year sentence fails, he could serve just two and a half more years for the killing.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
