Reeva's Parents reject £21k from Oscar Pistorius, tells him - "Keep your Blood Money" | ozara gossip

Reeva Steenkamp’s parents has rejected a £21,000 offered by Oscar Pistorius to console them. Barry and June Steenkamp also vowed to return “every damn” of monthly payments totaling £6,000 that their daughter Reeva’s killer has been depositing into an account since her death. 

Prosecutor Gerrie Nel said the lump sum payment, raised by the sale of the runner’s car, had been immediately rejected by the family, with Mrs Steenkamp insisting she did not want “blood money”

Dup De Bruyn, a lawyer for the Steenkamps, later claimed his clients had received R6,000 (£340) a month for the last 18 months. He said the payments had now stopped and the money would be repaid.

Mr De Bruyn said he approached the athlete’s legal team during the week, after the model’s death to explain that her family were struggling financially because Miss Steenkamp regularly sent money to her “cash-strapped” parents.

“I conveyed this to Oscar Pistorius’s lawyers,” the lawyer said Mr and Mrs Steenkamp were now in a position to repay the money – a total of £6,200.
“The Steenkamps don’t want any money and there will be no civil case, they want closure,” – Mr De Bruyn said.
