Oscar judgment on 11 September - As it happened

08 Aug 15:22 Masipa adjourns the court and says judgment will be handed down on 11 September.
08 Aug 15:21 Masipa questions where Roux got the examples of other cases he brought to court.
08 Aug 15:19 Roux says Fresco lied about the most crucial part, and his evidence was contradictory. He should not be granted indemnity. "The court needs to decide."
08 Aug 15:18 Masipa asks about the indemnity of Fresco.
08 Aug 15:17 Roux reads a case relating to a photo.
08 Aug 15:16 Nel: If his intention was to kill the human being behind the door. Then he is guilty of murder.
08 Aug 15:15 Nel: He intended to kill a human being. There was a human being behind the door.
08 Aug 15:15 Nel: Mr Roux said not call things by name, but look at the principles of law.
08 Aug 15:14 Nel says the witness's evidence was that she ate two hours before.
08 Aug 15:12 Nel says the two defences by the prosecution are not mutually exclusive, they are mutually destructive.
08 Aug 15:12 Nel says the length of the cord was never part of their baker's dozen.
08 Aug 15:11 Nel says he never made mention of the length of the cord.
08 Aug 15:10 Nel says the multi-plug could not have remained in the position that it was.
08 Aug 15:09 Nel says the state has not made an issue over the length of the cord.
08 Aug 15:08 Nel: We cannot ride roughshod over rules of admissibility.
08 Aug 15:08 Nel says he thought someone would give evidence about the photograph.
08 Aug 15:07 Nel: We now have a photo before the court. No meta-data available. The person who took it did not testify.
08 Aug 15:07 Masipa asks about the CCTV footage. Nel says he has no problem.
08 Aug 15:06 Nel: Yes - grant indemnity.
08 Aug 15:05 Nel: the test is whether he answered all the questions posed to him honestly.

Nel really hit a home run y/day. Its impossible that Pretorius will not be hanging in the joint for at least 7years. His arrogance will leave him a shamed, poorer disgrace with a criminal record.

If he gets free we'll see more of these mistake murders. Through doors. Tinted windows. Etc. Even if he gets a light sentence. Others will all be referenced to this case in future. So alot is riding on the judge's decision.

Let's see how much time Roux wastes on the bat theory again today...he's a useless lawyer as far as I'm concerned. Nel nailed it yesterday!

The red brigade is in full force already this morning...let's see how many of them will take a bullet for their hero...or 4 bullets in this case!

I find it quite disturbing that there were very few objections by Roux during the trial. Schulla, Jane and Pietse, do you agree with me? Maybe Masipa warned them not to make the trial an objection circus. Maybe I watch too many TV programmes. LOL.
