Oscar Pistorius has reportedly laid a complaint of attempted murder with prison authorities against nurses who he allegedly believes are trying to kill him.
The City Press on Sunday reported that three senior prison officials had confirmed that the complaint was laid three weeks ago.
Pistorius allegedly said that three prison nurses at Kgosi Mampuru II Prison‚ in Pretoria‚ were trying to kill him with “toxic” medication‚ according to the report.
Pistorius was apparently placed on suicide watch this week‚ the report said‚ after sustaining injuries to his wrists in prison.
The Department of Correctional Services have been approached for comment.
Department spokesman Manelisi Wolela could not give details of Pistorius’ injuries earlier this week.
“The Kgosi Mampuru Correctional Centre attended to his minor injuries on his wrists but further sent him to Kalafong hospital for treatment and he was returned to the centre.
“Oscar Pistorius denied speculations of a suicide attempt. As a policy we cannot further discuss a particular offender’s personal condition in the public domain‚” said Wolela.
