Paralympian Oscar Pistorius challenges bail conditions
PRETORIA (AFP) - South African Paralympian Oscar Pistorius, accused of murdering his girlfriend on Valentine's Day, is seeking to have his bail conditions relaxed so that he can travel abroad, a report said on Friday.
eNCA news channel said lawyers for the sprint star will ask for his ban on foreign travel to be lifted, along with mandatory drug and alcohol tests.
The lawyers argue that Pistorius - who says the shooting of Reeva Steenkamp was a tragic accident - is not a flight risk.
The papers requesting an easing of the bail conditions were reportedly filed with the North Gauteng High Court on Friday.
