THE father of model murdered by Paralympian Oscar Pistorius has revealed they shook hands during their emotional prison meeting.
But Barry Steenkamp, 76, still doesn’t forgive daughter Reeva’s killer.
The 30-minute meeting in June was arranged as part of the rehabilitation of the double amputee Pistorius.
Barry said: “He thanked me and told me how sorry he was. It was a touching moment.
“We decided to shake hands. I didn’t say “I forgive you”. I just said, ‘Thank you.’ ”
Pistorius, now 35, is serving 15 years after shooting dead Reeva, 29, through the toilet door at his home in Pretoria, South Africa, in 2013.
He claims he mistook her for a burglar.
Barry wanted Pistorius to finally get in, but told a TV documentary, “I didn’t understand my truth.”
Reeva’s mother June, 75, refused to attend.
