Oscar Pistorius has spoken out for the first time since he was denied leave to appeal his conviction for killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, asking a journalist: “Have you no soul?”
Pistorius has served one year of his five-year sentence for manslaughter and was due to spend the rest of his sentence under house arrest.
When asked by a reporter from South Africa’s Times newspaper how he was feeling, he text back:
“I have asked you not to call me.
“Do you have no soul to respect someone in a time like this that all you can think of is your career?”
