Barry Steenkamp said the Paralympian will "suffer alone" if his claim that he accidentally shot Reeva Steenkamp, 29, is false.
But Steenkamp told the Beeld newspaper he might be able to forgive Pistorius, below, one day if the double-amputee is telling the truth. His remarks came as the athlete appeared to issue his first public statement after being released on bail on Friday, charged with premeditated murder over the killing of Miss Steenkamp.
