The Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) will hear the State’s appeal against Oscar Pistorius's murder sentence on Friday 3 November.
The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) will argue that Pistorius should have been handed the minimum term of 15 years behind bars.
The High Court in Pretoria handed the disgraced athlete six years behind bars for murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.
Pistorius shot her on Valentines Day in 2013, claiming he believed she was an intruder.
This will be the second time the state is appealing the Pistorius case, reports EWN's Barry Bateman.
The NPA successfully had his culpable homicide conviction overturned and replaced with one of murder in December 2015.
Trial Judge Thokozile Masipa increased his sentence to six years.
The State argues that the former athlete’s six-year sentence is shockingly inappropriate for the crime of murder.
Pistorius was moved to the Atteridgvile Correctional Centre, which is better suited for inmates with physical disabilities.
Bateman says the athlete will have served nearly three years behind bars, and will have to serve at least another year before qualifying for parole.
This might change, depending on what the court finds in the appeal case.
