Two bail conditions imposed on murder-accused paralympian Oscar Pistorius were set aside by the High Court in Pretoria on Thursday.

They related to his presence at his home at the Silverwoods Country Estate, and that he report to the Brooklyn police station twice a week.

Judge Bert Bam said these were not listed in the court order of February 22.

"These two conditions should be disregarded," Bam said.

Pistorius, who was arrested on February 14 after Steenkamp was shot dead in his Pretoria home, was not present for the appeal.

Pistorius's had appealed against the limitation on him visiting his home, and had argued that the visits to the police station unnecessarily exposed him to the criminal justice system.
