Lawyers for paralympian Oscar Pistorius have filed papers opposing the State’s application to appeal his culpable homicide conviction and sentence.
One of Pistorius’s lawyers Brian Webber confirmed this on Friday but declined to say on what grounds the appeal would be opposed.
“The grounds are contained in the documents,” he said.
On Tuesday, the National Prosecuting Authority announced that it had filed an application for leave to appeal Pistorius’s conviction and sentence.
The appeal against his conviction was based on a question of law, spokesman Nathi Mncube said at the time.
