Killer Oscar Pistorius will reportedly be allowed leave from prison on compassionate grounds so he can attend a memorial service for his grandad.
The former Paralympian is currently serving a 15-year sentence for the murder of his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in 2013.
But family sources are reported to have told local media that Oscar will be freed so he can be present at the funeral of Hendrik Pistorius, who died last month after a routine operation in hospital.
