SOUTH AFRICA: Paralympian Oscar Pistorius will spend a seventh night in police cells as his bail bid for the alleged murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp was rolled over to tomorrow.
In a dramatic day, his defence lawyer advocate Barry Roux attacked the police’s initial investigation report on the shooting, which the State alleges was premeditated murder.
Roux accused investigating officer Hilton Botha of contaminating the scene at Pistorius’ Pretoria home, by not wearing shoe covers.
The police also did not find a fourth bullet lodged in a toilet, Roux continued.
He said the State got it wrong when it said that Pistorius had a house in Italy in support of its claim that he was a flight risk and should not be granted bail.
