Former Paralympic champion Oscar Pistorius is making another bid for early release from the South African prison where he is serving over 13 years for murdering his girlfriend.
Pistorius shot Reeva Steenkamp 10 years ago at his home in Pretoria in a killing that shocked the world, and was jailed for murder in 2016.
The parole hearing is at Atteridgeville prison, just outside Pretoria.
Ms Steenkamp’s mother, June, is not opposing parole.
June Steenkamp will not be present at the hearing, her lawyer Tania Koen told the BBC. A victim impact statement from her will be read to the parole board.
Reeva Steenkamp’s father Barry died in September.
