Happier times: Pistorius, right, and his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp pose for a picture

Lawyers acting for ‘blade runner’ Oscar Pistorius – accused of shooting dead his girlfriend – want his bail conditions relaxed and passports returned so he can travel overseas, it emerged today.

Pistorius, charged with the Valentine’s Day murder of Reeva Steenkamp, 29, was released on strict bail conditions two weeks ago.  He was ordered to pay a bond of 1 million rand ($110,000), hand over his passports and forbidden from returning to his house, the scene of the crime.

But South African television channel eNCA said today that Pistorius and his lawyers felt his bail conditions were unfair.

Lawyers acting for 'blade runner' Oscar Pistorius, accused of shooting dead his girlfriend, want his bail conditions relaxed and passports returned so he can travel overseas.

‘In papers before the high court they argue that Magistrate Desmond Nair was wrong to order Pistorius to hand over his passport and travel documents given that the magistrate found the athlete was not a proven flight risk,’ the report said.

Pistorius’ defence said he should be allowed to travel if he won consent from the detective working on the case.

They also argued that mandatory alcohol and drug tests were unnecessary and there was no need for him to report to a police station twice a week or be visited by a probation officer.

The case of the 26-year-old Olympic and Paralympic track star, a double amputee since infancy, stunned a nation that holds him up as hero who triumphed over adversity to compete with able-bodied athletes at the highest levels of sport.

On Thursday Warrant Officer Hilton Botha, the detective who was pulled off the investigation after it emerged he himself faced attempted murder charges, resigned from the force.

Pistorius is on bail awaiting trial for the murder of the former model after she was shot four times at his property on Valentine’s Day.

Can you imagine….so soon? They want him to return to sports so soon…Ok oooo!
