South Africa judge lifts travel ban on Pistorius

South African track star Oscar Pistorius, charged with murder in the slaying of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, is once more allowed to travel overseas after a judge lifted a bail condition Thursday restricting his movements.

Judge Bert Bam said Pistorius could hand over his passport to his attorney and was entitled to use it to travel outside South Africa.

He should report his itinerary a week before leaving, Bam said.

Authorities charged Pistorius with premeditated murder last month after he shot Steenkamp in his Pretoria home on February 14.

    Probably heading to a country with no extradition. It's not like he can hide.

    Yes, let the killer get on with his life while his girlfriend is six feet under. Sounds just, sounds fair.

    Note to self: If you need to murder someone, move to South Africa, have cash on hand to bribe judge.
