I'm sure I've said this over a million times these last 20 months but Gerrie Nel is a sadistic *** 😡
- Hee madoda, kante who? I hope it's not Gerrie Nel because there's only 1 gun crazy bleksem I'm thinking of right now! Thixo!
Gerrie Nel must be careful ,what goes around comes around!You don't sew seeds of hate and expect to harvest love! # Never
Lol! Roger Dixon traumatised by being on the stand during Oscars trial, *** Gerrie Nel neh? Yoh!
how nice, putting the onus on Gerrie Nel when someone died because of not Nel.
we've been through this though. He did not know who was inside. Even the most trusted Gerrie Nel failed to prove
Read on Prof James Grant's TL today that he is assisting Gerrie Nel with the appeal.
More press coverage of OP checking his social media during court proceedings.Disrespectful and cold-hearted! Bring on Gerrie Nel
investigate Gerrie Nel,Mikey Schultz's assassination of Brett Kebble. Nel the hypocrite
dear Alex please investigate Gerrie Nel, Mikey Schultz hired murderer of Brett Kebble and expose Nel for what he is!
So is one of Gerrie Nel's associated. Oscar is NOT laughing at this awful situation. Only a silly person would think that.
didn't Judge Masipa say justice is not about vengeance or maybe Gerrie Nel didn't get that
Adv Nel is a Genius and it's a privilege to work with him I'm sure.So forget the hate trolls & enjoy the ride!Go team Gerrie!
wow, U must be looking forward to work with great Gerrie Nel! :)
Dear Gerrie Nel: As a tax payer I prohibit you from using MY money to serve your ego. Appeal with your own money not mine.
Catchy! Can someone please tell Gerrie Nel to amend the appeal documents accordingly!

Roger dixon has been a forensic expert for years but just 3 days spend with Gerrie Nel on the witness box and now he wants to quit Lol
So Gerrie Nel dismantled Mr. Dixon hence he quit as a forensic expert! .
Lmao he wants nothing to do with courts after Gerrie Nel grilled him
I see Gerrie Nel is going to appeal...
Except. that he is apparently a chief consultant for Gerrie Nel in this appeal.
Again, it must be asked, where the *** did Gerrie Nel receive his legal education?
It's like anyone can be a witness in the -I hope I get called to be a witness. Oh how I would love to annoy Gerrie Nel😈
I hear Gerrie Nel as asked James Grant to assist on the appeal and he has agreed to do so!
Gerrie Nel and the NPA make me feel a bit dolus myself. What is wrong with this picture? They're going to (cont)
The judge misjudged horribly. Hence Gerrie Nel appealing finding and the sentence.
I met my hero today :D Advocate Gerrie Nel came to visit Radio Pretoria today

Gerrie Nel better wrap up Oscars appeal fast the country is going to need him at his best when we catch these animals
Adv Gerrie Nel and Adv Andrea Johnson to appeal the conviction and sentencing, great decision which must be won.
Not when you start threatening me with Gerrie bladdy Nel, honey pie!
Oscar when Gerrie Nel announced his intention to appeal
Keep the good work up. Our country needs people like you. Truly appreciate u..
Prof, whatever you told Gerrie Nel and his team must have been pretty convincing. announces appeal.
Redi Gerrie Nel is wasting the tax payers money,it could be used to better the hospitals and school.Its become personal for him
Contrary to what I've been hearing in the news, I don't think Gerrie Nel is appealing at all.
The NPA's decision to appeal Pistorius' conviction comes after a meeting by prosecutor, Gerrie Nel and NPA boss, Mxolisi Nxasana.
PATHETIC!!Judge Thokozile Masipa handed down Oscar’s sentence for killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine’s Day last year.The paralympian was sentenced to five years imprisonment for the culpable homicide killing of his girlfriend, Judge Masipa said. ‘The decision is mine and mine alone’ He was also sentenced to three years, suspended for five years, for firing a pistol under a table at Tasha’s restaurant in Johannesburg in January 2013. The sentences would run concurrently. Earlier, she said the department of correctional services was equipped to deal with people who have disabilities like Oscar Pistorius. “If the accused had to get a custodial sentence it would not be the first time the correctional services department would be confronted with an inmate with a disability,” Masipa said. “I have no reason therefore that the accused would present the department of correctional service with an insurmountable challenge.” Masipa dealt with defence witnesses social worker Joel Mar ...
While I'm on the media naming and shaming bandwagon today, I hope that Masipa and her assessors take a day to review the appallingly misleading and out-and-out false reporting of the Oscar Pistorius case from start to (please!) finish. Since it's what created the societal need for retribution in lieu of ubuntu and fed the misconception that Oscar murdered Reeva and knew she was behind the door, it's worth taking time before she ever again publicly embraces public opinion as a determinant. Or praises Gerrie Nel. Or absolves the NPA and SAPS and the media.
One thin' I would tell Adv Gerrie Nel if I get the opportunity to meet him: may God bless you for the exceptional work you do in fightin' for justice_!! the love of lawby Gerrie Nel

It is a short step from beating someone to shooting them, and Judge Masipa missed the signs. In truth, so did Gerrie Nel!!

He is an amazing Prosecutor and did a wonderful job with Oscar Pistorius, he saw right thru him from day one and gave him exactly what he deserved. Unfortunately in my opinion the Justice system failed him. He is just man and is quite prepared to put the blame where it belongs, he is strong and believes in what he is doing. Just a great pity Oscar did not get what he deserves. ( and that was not due to the lack of trying. If it was me I would appeal the sentence, but then it won't help because all the relevant people have already been paid off. Put the Justice back into this society Gerry!!! they need people like you.

The Sentencing of Oscar Pistorius Tomorrow Oscar is sentenced. Friday we heard argument in mitigation of sentence and argument in aggravation of sentence. I have views on both. In the first place the presence of a self-confessed contract killer in court last week, who made a deal with Gerrie Nel which bought him immunity from prosecution and the very consequences for killing another human being that Gerrie Nel speaks of, derogates Gerrie Nel’s credibility when he exhorts the judge and her assessors not to allow Oscar get away with the gravity of what he has done. It’s a pretty surreal context which we must process and ask ourselves some tough questions. I leave that to you. Barry Roux on the other hand raises all the mitigating factors that would support application of restorative justice, but his fleeting and lightweight references to Ubuntu and Restorative Justice (although they may be elaborated on well in his heads of argument) do not demonstrate a profound understanding of or depth of insight in ...
Gerrie Nel presented the state's closing arguments during sentencing proceedings for Oscar Pistorius today.
Oscar Pistorius uses his disability on call and only when he needs to, Gerrie Nel said. This is very very unfair MY Lady!
I think Gerrie Nel is on the wrong side of Judge Masipa, it is not helping his case even though he is right.
Let's take a minute and think What If - Gerrie Nel was the Lawyer representing the 'murder' this time Reeva and Roux was the Prosecutor seeking justice for the 'dead' OP. What sentence would Barry Roux and Oscar be happy with to believe justice is done?
"Oscar Pistorius must get minimum of 10 years" Gerrie Nel
There has been talk of the relationship between Mikey Schultz and Gerrie nel. Mikey Schultz was given indemnity in the Brett Kebble murder. The state gave him indemnity and Gerrie Nel was appointed Prosecutor,before the case started the NPA took Nel off the case as he was busy with the Jackie Selebi case. That is where the relationship starts and ends. Glenn Agliotti, a convicted drug-dealer was also arrested in connection with the murder of Brett Kebble. It is no secret that there is a connection between Glenn and Oscar in social circles.
Pistorius should spend 10 years in prison, Gerrie Nel says

Pistorius sentencing: State closes its case — The State closed its case in the sentencing procedures of Paralympian Oscar Pistorius in the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria yesterday. “The case for the State in terms of sentencing is closed,” Prosecutor Gerrie Nel said. “I suggest that we adjourn until tomorrow morning and then we argue.” On September 12, Pistorius was convicted of culpable homicide for the Valentine’s Day 2013, shooting of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in his Pretoria town house. The court found him not guilty of murdering Steenkamp. The State called two witnesses in the sentencing procedures — Steenkamp’s cousin Kim Martin and the acting national commissioner of correctional services Zach Modise. The defence called for — Pistorius’s psychologist Lore Hartzenberg, his manager Petrus van Zyl, correctional services department social worker Mashaba Joel Maringa and probation officer and social worker Annette Vergeer. Arguments would be heard at toady. Pistorius shot ...

Woke up this morning feeling like Gerrie Nel after the Oscar Verdict when I rewatched Lampard's goal against us.
Gerrie Nel would have used ALL available evidence if it could sink Oscar. He wants him out of society
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’s ruling regarding the legal principal of dolus eventualis. “The appetite for the appeal went all the way to the top,” the source said, referring to National Director of Public Prosecutions Mxolisi Nxasana, who was also in court to hear Masipa’s 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 — legal analysts and others — find fault with Masipa's conclusion. Here's why the judge ruled the way she did: ——— 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?

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.

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 murder😐

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.

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.

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.

Most law experts feel JM faulted - then Gerrie Nel should lodge an appeal - why don't he?

Don't you trust Gerrie Nel to appeal against Judge Thokozile Masipa's decision if he finds it's "preserving wealthy celebrity ?"

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.

Oscar Pistorius trial: 8 things we learned from Prosecutor Gerrie Nel's closing speech |
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’s 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’s 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 ...
I like Gerrie Nel, he's the best Prosecutor in SA

Gerrie Nel argues that Oscar Pistorius lawyers have tried to present two different defenses to murder charg…
Please Ladies and Gentlemen I know emotions are running high. Let's respect one another's opinion. And do not insult each other, incite arguments. Let's respect both Barry Roux and Gerrie Nel in our posts and comments.
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 ...
I wonder if Wolmarans and Dixon are going to have another beer and talk about what a meanie that Gerrie Nel is...
State Adv. Gerrie Nel was very convincing in his closing argument. Go, go!
Fair play to Gerrie Nel though, he is good at what he does. Smooth talker, m'lady.
Listening to Gerrie Nel. Reeva was never in the toilet. Bathroom? Yes😳
- 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."
