OSCAR Pistorius’ lawyers are in court in Pretoria today arguing for the removal of some of the paralympian’s bail conditions.

The South African star is charged with the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, who was shot dead in the couple’s home last month.

Pistorius was granted bail with a wide range of provisos, such as not returning to his home or drinking alcohol.

The sprinter is also banned from travel, a ban which Pistorius’ legal team argue is unfair as the magistrate who granted bail deemed that Pistorius posed no flight risk.

Pistorius is not expected to make any appearance at court today.
