Pretoria — Oscar Pistorius was granted bail in the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court on Friday.

“… I come to the conclusion the accused has made a case to be released on bail,” said Magistrate Desmond Nair.

Pistorius is charged with the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on February 14.

Nair said there was no evidence before him that Pistorius would interfere with state witnesses and no proper evidence relating to the public perception of the matter.

He was not a flight risk and a propensity for violence had not been shown.

Instead of a “flimsy” affidavit, he had “reached out”.

People in the gallery stood up and shouted “yes” on hearing this.
