The postponement of sentencing hearing in the Oscar Pistorius murder case will be heard on Monday in the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria, the office of the chief justice announced tonight.
During the hearing, which is expected to last between 30 minutes and an hour, the sentencing proceedings of the disgraced Olympian will be formally postponed to June 13.
On Monday, Pistorius will appear in court before his trial judge, Thokozile Masipa, alongside his legal team led by Advocate Barry Roux SC.
The proceedings will be televised.
Between June 13 and 17, Pistorius will be sentenced for the murder of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, whom he shot to death on Valentine’s Day in 2013.
He was originally found guilty of culpable homicide but after an appeal by the prosecution, the conviction was overturned and Pistorius was found guilty of murder.
