TVC NEWS [JOHANNESBURG] - Following the public outcry that greeted the release of the South Africa's "Blade Runner", Oscar Pistorius, his family has emphasized that the Paralympic gold medallist sentence was not reduced or shortened.

Pistorious was released on parole on Monday night, just short of a year into his five-year sentence for killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

"It is very important for the family to emphasize that Oscar's sentence hasn't been shortened or reduced. He is simply entering the next phase of his sentence now. He will serve this under the strict conditions that govern correctional supervision," said the family spokesperson, Annaliese Burgeff.

She added that the family will continue to support Pistorious as he serves the remain of the five year sentence handed down by the trial judge and that he will ''strictly adhere to the conditions set by the parole board and community corrections."

The Paralympic gold medallist must serve the rest of his sentence under house arrest, and still has to face an appeal by prosecutors who argue that he should have been convicted of murder rather than culpable homicide.

Pistorius, 28, who was found guilty of the lesser charge when he fired four shots through a locked bathroom door and hit Steenkamp, will be confined to his uncle Arnold's home in a wealthy suburb of the capital Pretoria
