Pistorius sentencing: State closes its case ‚ÄĒ The State closed its case in the sentencing procedures of Paralympian Oscar Pistorius in the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria yesterday. ‚ÄúThe case for the State in terms of sentencing is closed,‚ÄĚ Prosecutor Gerrie Nel said. ‚ÄúI suggest that we adjourn until tomorrow morning and then we argue.‚ÄĚ On September 12, Pistorius was convicted of culpable homicide for the Valentine‚Äôs Day 2013, shooting of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in his Pretoria town house.

UPDATE ON LATEST HEADLINES OUT OF SA: The parents of Reeva Steenkamp are set to continue to pursue their multimillion-rand civil claim against for loss of income and emotional distress. It had been on hold until the case was finalised, but their lawyer, Dup de Bruyn, confirmed they would continue with it after the case was finalised. A source close to the Pistorius family said defence advocate Barry Roux left a brief meeting with state Prosecutor Gerrie Nel on Friday absolutely convinced that Nel would appeal the judgment. Although no final decision to appeal will be made until after sentencing, a very senior NPA source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, confirmed that there was definitely an appetite for an appeal on the basis of Masipa‚Äôs ruling regarding the legal principal of dolus eventualis. ‚ÄúThe appetite for the appeal went all the way to the top,‚ÄĚ the source said, referring to National Director of Public Prosecutions Mxolisi Nxasana, who was also in court to hear Masipa‚Äôs ruling. Meanwhi ...
It seems like people are ignorant about facts tabulatated by Judge Thokozile Masipa hence they are throwing baseless accusations and support motion to appeal. On the other hand, media is blowing the matter out of proportion, indirectly trying to destroy Oscar's brand. I choose to be objective as an ordinary South African and totally support her judgement on the following grounds: # I repeat it: Oscar was alone at the time of the incident, that makes him the only reliable witness. It is only his version of the story that will count not of the state regardless of whether Gerrie Nel paralysed him with questions while he was on the witness box. - Does the state have reliable witness that was present during the incident? "NO". - That creates this question: How do we know if he is lying or telling the truth? - How do we convict him without having a concrete proof that will challenge his version of the story? In his statement he said: "I never intended to shoot Reeva Steenkamp, I thought it was an intruder, ther ...
Gerrie Nel - I hope u r appealing the ridiculous ruling by Judge Masipa in Oscar case... Dolus eventualis... blatant error will b overturned
tough one. No apparent motive. But Gerrie Nel was impressive I thought.
Gerrie Nel failed to disprove the 'intruder' theory or prove any other theory.
Lol so if Thuli Madonsela is as good as we say, let her intervane the Oscar trial. Frm Gerrie Nel, jugde Roux, Oscar to judge Masepa. And do her auding skills.
if there was any sniff of previous domestic violence Gerrie Nel would've had a field day
irrespective of JM's ruling I believe that Adv Nel did a sterling job difficult task ForRS
Did Oscar Pistorius get away with murder? Judge Thokozile Masipa's decision to acquit Pistorius of murder has left many in South Africa asking that question. Masipa's decision hinged on a little-known Latin term and a complex section of South African law: "Dolus eventualis." The term means a defendant should be convicted of murder if it's found that they foresaw a possibility that someone would die as a result of their unlawful actions, but continued with the actions anyway and the person was killed. In acquitting the world-famous athlete of murder on Friday, Judge Masipa ruled that Pistorius did not identify at the time that someone might die before he shot four times through a door into a small toilet cubicle, killing Reeva Steenkamp. Many South Africans ‚ÄĒ legal analysts and others ‚ÄĒ find fault with Masipa's conclusion. Here's why the judge ruled the way she did: ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ‚ÄĒ PREMEDITATED MURDER Most legal analysts praised Masipa's verdict that Pistorius could not be found guilty of premeditated or pre ...
The Oscar Pistorius Verdict. On reading some opinion about Judge Masipa's ruling, it seems that a very crucial moment that might have tilted the case in Oscar's favour is the point in the Gerrie Nel's cross examination of Oscar where Gerrie tried to press Oscar about the moment before the gun went off/he pulled the trigger. It seems that Gerrie Nel left it to be implied/inferred that Oscar INTENDED to shoot and INTENDED to kill. If you remember, Oscar wavered and offered several versions. His gun went off without him realising, there was a sound behind the door and he fired, he felt threatened and then he fired. In all his versions he could not account for why he shot four times. The judge seems to be saying that the prosecution FAILED to get him to admit that HE FULLY RECONCILED HIMSELF TO THE POSSIBILITY THAT HIS SHOOTING COULD KILL SOMEONE. In that moment in the cross examination, the judge seems to be saying that Gerrie must have squeezed him more. Gerrie must have pushed him to OWN one version, then ...
Ithink he must be dissappointed wherever he is RT"Gerrie Nel did an excellent job!
my wife (sharper than Gerrie Nel) asks, lets say he did hear an intruder in the bathroom and shot at the intruder through the door. Why then break it down? wouldn't you call the cops and let them do it? why go to look at what you've possibly killed?
Barry Roux and Gerrie Nel rise briefly. Masipa: "I need to address the issue of the indemnity of Mr Fresco."
Truth is Judge Masipa will be hated by S.Africans after this OP case, and Gerrie Nel always will be our hero nomatter the verdict.
He should be laughing. GErrie Nel won him the case.
you played your role sir .I salute you.
Adv Gerrie Nel and Adv Andrea Johnson I still trust in you going forward, the war is not over.
Can everyone stop blaming Judge Masipa for her judgement. You should blame Gerrie Nel for not proving that Oscar is guilty of murderūüėź
Gerrie Nel your over inflated evidence and witnesses that waffled to much shot u in the foot!
The state should have fired Gerrie Nel when their had the chance.# oscartrail
Right now Gerrie Nel must really want to put it to Barry Roux's face.
Will Gerrie Nel ever be allowed to publicly voice his opinion on the trial and the verdict?
Gerrie Nel should've been the judge, his antennae locks onto con artists by that tell tale grin on his face, priceless.
Still no legal education specifics or verification on Gerrie Nel.
I'm putting it to you that Barry Roux will be much after sought advocate after he outclass Gerrie Nel.
Did Gerrie Nel not try hard enough to convict OxPis? Or did Gogo Masipa fall asleep during the proceedings?
I can't express my gratitude to Gerrie Nel, as he was a true True Warrior, and fought all the way with the little he had‚Ä¶
Profiling a killer, Gerrie Nel goes in to his mind and nails him, too bad the state didn't believe in him Gerrie was on the roll
Always felt guilty of culpable homicide, and I think he would have pleaded guilty to that. Nel framed charges wrong.
All this unhappiness at verdict, When does the performance of Nel get scrutinised.?
Most law experts feel JM faulted - then Gerrie Nel should lodge an appeal - why don't he?
And the Oscar for 'Best Slap in the Face of Justice' goes to.. Everyone involved in the Except Gerrie Nel. Give him a beer!
So this case will be won by Captain Mangena. We salute you sir! You & Gerrie Nel!

Gerrie Nel used OP's sale of properties as reason not to extend bail - why not the conviction of Culp Hom?

I still believe that Prosecutor Gerrie Nel did an exceptional job. Its unfortunate that today justice wasn't upheld.
Gerrie Nel did the best he could. Proving reasonable doubt is no child's play.
The problem is y'all lost faith in my *** Barry Roux cause you saw Gerrie Nel going HAM. Look at you no faith having mot‚Ä¶
Gerrie Nel quickly leaves the courtroom.
Bathi gerrie nel was bzy shouting oscar instead of proving that his lying,eish tweeps
The Pistorius trial has basically been To Kill a Mockingbird, with Gerrie Nel as Atticus Finch.
Gerrie Nel was busy shouting that the accused is lying instead of proving that he's lying
So the battle between Gerrie Nel and has come to an end. The undisputed champion is Barry Roux.
Gerrie Nel did an excellent job with what he had. JM was woeful and misinterpreted the law of DE!
So for all the wit and efforts Prosecutor Gerrie Nel put in the trial are now futile? NPA better reconvene for successful re-prosecution.
I don't want Gerrie Nel anywhere near the spy tapes. That guy is equally good as Roux unfortunately there was no key witness in this case.
Does this prove that and are more important than the quality of the lawyers? Could Gerrie Nel have done anyth‚Ä¶
Don't you trust Gerrie Nel to appeal against Judge Thokozile Masipa's decision if he finds it's "preserving wealthy celebrity ?"
Gerrie Nel is tops!! He took OP apart but the judge for some reason ignored it.
To Gerrie Nel: You a faboulus prosecuter. Don't give up. Mow is your change to show the world how good you are in prosecuting. O can't waite
i agree. The judge made a *** of a mess with her judgement. But i think we have not seem the end of Gerrie Nel.
Don't worry world bcz Gerrie Nel will not let this go. He will be charged of murder. That's what he deserve anyway
I ask Prosecutor Gerrie Nel if he's going to appeal the verdict. Refuses to be drawn.
I hope the real Gerrie Nel apply for leave to appeal this judgement.
interesting viewpoint: the error wasn't made by Judge Masipa, it was made by Gerrie Nel in his trial strategy.
Gerrie Nel and his team MUST appeal the decision against Pistorius. The Judge clearly applied the law incorrectly. Dollus eventualis

State Prosecutor Gerrie Nel is presenting his closing argument. Follow it live:
Roux - Closing arguments Oscar Pistorius will learn his fate next month after Judge Thokozile Masipa confirmed she would start delivering her verdict on September 11. On Friday Pistorius's lawyer Barry Roux did his best to drill holes into Prosecutor Gerrie Nel's "baker‚Äôs dozen of incongruencies", which he presented during the state's closing arguments on Thursday. Roux, arguing that each of Nel's incongruencies could easily be explained, told the court: "If that's a baker's dozen, then I don't want to eat those cookies." Roux also told the court that the "days of the reasonable man of the 1960s, in the grey suit wearing grey shoes, are over. We have moved on." Roux argued that Pistorius's anxiety and feelings of vulnerability arising out of his disability needed to be considered when reaching a verdict in the Paralympian‚Äôs murder trial. Roux argued that the state failed to provide conclusive evidence of an argument between Pistorius and his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in the early hours of Valentine's ...

Pistorius Trial: 'He Did Not Want Reeva Dead' The defence says Pistorius' behaviour after the shooting was consistent with a "huge unfortunate mistake." Pistorius: Defence Closing Argument Enlarge Email Oscar Pistorius' lawyer has said the athlete should never have been charged for murder, arguing he would not have tried so desperately to save Reeva Steenkamp had he intended to kill her. Setting out the key points of the defence, Barry Roux asked the judge: "Why would he beg for help, be crying if he had just deliberately killed her?" His day-long closing statement focused on two key points. Firstly that Pistorius had no motive for killing his girlfriend, with whom he was in a loving relationship. Sky's Alex Crawford said Mr Roux was on 'fine form' in his closing speech He said Pistorius had believed he was firing on an intruder, arguing his subsequent behaviour was consistent with him having made a "huge, unfortunate mistake." Secondly that he said the athlete's disability meant he could not be expected ...

Listening to Gerrie Nel. Reeva was never in the toilet. Bathroom? Yesūüė≥
- Roux Published: Today,13:15 Source:SAPA (Alon Skuy,AP) Pretoria - The prosecutor in murder accused Oscar Pistorius's trial is "desperate and naughty", Advocate Barry Roux for Pistorius, told the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria on Friday. "Mr Nel is desperate. I have a lot of respect for Mr Nel and his experience," Roux said, referring to Prosecutor Gerrie Nel. Roux said Nel had submitted evidence in his closing arguments based on an interview on a Pretoria radio station. He said Nel knew it was wrong and was being naughty because the prosecution lacked evidence. "You cannot quote a radio and say this is evidence... The hole is too big. He had to refer to a radio station," Roux said. "The State fetched cases from another jurisdiction... It was to create this atmosphere, knowing its deficiencies."

Somebody said: "The way Gerrie Nel is going down, they will soon discover Copper ." I'm in tears.
Tjer. Gerrie Nel yoyoyo. If Oscar is not guilty of killing Reeva then he's guilty of killng a human being who he says is an intruder. Pistorious wa tsamaya as per my limited legal knowledge. He killed a woman and his judgement will be passed by a woman in women's month. Iyo!
Oscar Pistorius' "primal instincts" kicked in when he shot dead his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp because he was in a vulnerable and fearful state, his defence lawyer said at the athlete's murder trial on Friday. Double amputee Pistorius, 27, once a national icon for reaching the pinnacle of sport, is accused of murdering Steenkamp, a law graduate and model, at his home in Pretoria on Valentine's Day last year. The defence says Pistorius, nicknamed the 'Blade Runner' after his carbon-fibre prosthetic running legs, shot Steenkamp through a locked toilet door in self-defence, believing she was an intruder, and that therefore he should be acquitted. State Prosecutor Gerrie Nel has spent the trial, which began in March, portraying Pistorius as a gun-obsessed hothead who deliberately shot Steenkamp, 29, four times through the door of the toilet, where she was taking refuge after an argument. Defence lawyer Barry Roux said during his closing arguments that psychological evidence had proven the track star had a hei ...

Prosecutor says Pistorius lied on stand By CHRISTOPHER TORCHIA and GERALD IMRAYAssociated Press PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) ‚Äď The chief prosecutor in Oscar Pistorius' murder trial said Thursday in closing arguments that the athlete repeatedly lied during testimony in a crude attempt to defend against a murder charge for killing girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. Prosecutor Gerrie Nel cited flaws in the defense, saying the Olympian's legal team floated more than one theory about what happened on the night that Pistorius shot Steenkamp through a closed toilet door in his home. Defense lawyers had argued that Pistorius fired in self-defense, fearing an intruder, Nel said, but they also raised the possibility that he was not criminally responsible and accidentally shot because he was ‚Äústartled.‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúIt's two defenses that you can never reconcile,‚ÄĚ Nel said as Pistorius sat behind him in the dock, occasionally flicking through documents.
