Claiming nephew’s innocence, Pistorius’ uncle says Bladerunner will come back ‘a stronger person’
New York: The uncle of Paralympic star Oscar Pistorius has said that Pistorius will be back a stronger person from the tragedy of the murder trial of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.
Announcing his nephew’s innocence on national TV, Arthur Pistorius has said that Pistorius will bounce back from the tragedy, in a greater form than ever, New York Daily News reports.
Accusing the prosecution of leaking evidence to the media, Pistorius said that he believes in his nephew’s innocence and added that the truth will prevail in the end like light after darkness.
Pistorius’ uncle further said that although the ‘Bladerunner’ will be much changed after the tragedy, he will be able to overcome his misfortunes because of his strong character.
Speaking about the ‘emotional distress’ of his nephew, Pistorius said that the Paralympic sprinter, a devout Christian, is in extreme shock and had just started eating, and added that Pistorius’ belief in God and his survival instincts will help him move forward.
Insisting that his nephew is not violent, Pistorius said that the Paralympian has always been a peace-maker and is kind-heated, despite his tough looks.
Offering his condolences to Steenkamp’s family, Pistorius said that they respected the privacy of the grieving relatives of Steenkamp, although he added that the tragedy had affected his family too.
