The National Prosecuting Authority believes that the High Court failed to take into account that Reeva Steenkamp's right to life was needlessly taken from her.

In the court papers, the NPA said that insufficient weight was given to the fact that Pistorius' showed disregard for human life.

The NPA said Pistorius was quick to resort to gun violence to kill the person behind the toilet door.

The NPA on yesterday said it would appeal against Oscar Pistorius's six-year sentence for murder, calling it shockingly too lenient.

It said the sentence was disproportionate to the crime and could bring the justice system into disrepute.

The NPA has decided to file an application for leave to appeal, it said in a statement.
