Pretoria- The Department of Correctional Services are only willing to confirm that “Oscar’s minor injuries” to his wrists were attended to at the Kgosi Mampuru II Prison in Pretoria where he is serving his six-year jail term, and that he was then sent to the Kalafong Hospital, west of Pretoria, for further treatment.
According to the department he was later taken back to prison. They said while Oscar denied it was a suicide attempt, they cannot further discuss an offender’s personal condition in the public domain.
It is unsure whether Oscar Pistorius on Saturday attempted to commit suicide or whether the injuries he suffered to his wrists were due to an accident when he fell off his bed, and the family chose to remain mum.
