Cape Town - British journalist and television personality Piers Morgan has called Oscar Pistorius a "murderer and liar".

Morgan took to Twitter after watching ITV's interview with Pistorius - the first interview the convicted former SA Paralympian has given since the death of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, on Valentine's Day in 2013.

M-Net screened the interview late on Friday night.

Morgan called Pistorius a "murderer" and "liar" for his version of events following the killing of Steenkamp.

Pretoria High Court Judge Thokozile Masipa is expected to hand down a murder sentence for Pistorius on Wednesday, July 6. 

The Supreme Court of Appeal previously overturned her verdict of culpable homicide and replaced it with one of murder.
