Oscar Pistorius: What the ConCourt needs to consider

As the time approaches for the ConCourt to hear the States appeal against sentence in the Oscar Pistorius case, it is worth considering the actions of the lead protagonists in this application and whether their actions were beyond reproach thus justifying the application, or whether the application was part of a process that brought the Justice System of South Africa into disrepute and became instead a personal vendetta, a manipulation of the justice system by a prosecutor whose primary role and responsibility was to promote and uphold the application of Justice as directed by the Code of Conduct he was duty bound to follow.
When one scrutinises the trial record in the Oscar Pistorius case what is apparent is that there is clear evidence that the chief prosecutor - Mr Nel paid little regard to the Code of Conduct and instead adopted a cavalier style of cross examination that was prone to fabrication, unfounded accusations and untruths.
If the practice of a prosecutor is one that misleads the Court, then it follows that such practice, if it remains unchallenged, sets the bench mark for what is expected of a prosecutors in exercising their duty on behalf of the State. When such practice is exercised by the most revered prosecutor and it remains unchallenged it brings the entire justice system into disrepute.

Prison sentence

Criminal law expert Llewellyn Curlewis however, said parole is not an automatic right or a given.

The parole-board should know or be informed about the State's hanging case against Pistorius's sentence.

The State believes his six-year prison sentence is shockingly light and believes he should remain in jail for a longer period.

The State is making an application to the appeals court to appeal against his sentence.

Curlewis said the parole board can do one of two things if Pistorius's three-year prison sentence passes before the appeals court delivers a ruling.

Firstly, Pistorius's parole application can be postponed until the court makes a ruling.

Secondly, the parole board can after three years hold a parole hearing, grant parole and release him.

If the court thereafter rules that he must serve a longer prison sentence, it would however cause practical problems, because Pistorius would then be required to report to jail again as he has done in the past.

"Something like this would leave a bad taste in the mouth."

Pretoria - “Your smile will see us again. God will heal what hurts. Stand strong as you remain my golden boy. You are one in a million.” Dear Oh Dear, what sad lives these pissy fans lead, they are so wrapped up in this murderous little turd.... :red: :red: :red:


This is one of the several messages on social media from all over the world this week from members of the Support for Oscar group, as they commemorated a year since the Blade Runner had been put back in jail.

Former chief prosecutor in the high-profile trial, Gerrie Nel, expressed his shock and dissatisfaction a year ago after Judge Thokozile Masipa sentenced Oscar for a second time - this time to a six-year jail sentence for murder.

This was soon followed by an application to the SCA, in which Nel vehemently objected to what he referred to as a severely lenient sentence.

The SCA earlier ordered that it would hear oral argument in this regard but the matter has been dragging for nearly a year now and the matter is yet to be heard.

Senior officials close to the case said they anticipated the appeal would be heard towards the end of this year.

The director of public prosecutions is to petition the Supreme Court of Appeal against Oscar Pistorius's six year jail sentence in September of 2017.
Two different events were presented to Judge Masipa for her to decide which one occurred.
Judge Masipa decided it was not murder. The Supreme Court of Appeal in Bloemfontein overturned the initial culpable homicide conviction to murder.
In the Supreme Court there were three judges on the bench.
Judge Masipa was again responsible for the sentencing of the convicted murderer, she gave him six years. By law in South Africa a convicted murderer is faced with a mandatory 15 year sentence.
The prosecutors again questioned Masipa’s judgment.
The first possibility.
Reeva Steenkamp and Oscar Pistorius were arguing and shouting was heard.
Reeva locked herself in the toilet to protect herself from Pistorius and when she would not open the door he shot her to death firing four times.
Estelle Van Der Merwe a neighbour said she heard arguments that lasted over an hour.
Masipa dismissed this evidence.
Other neighbours said they heard a woman's scream.
Masipa said it could have been Pistorius screaming and dismissed this as evidence.
One has to wonder here if anyone can differentiate between a woman screaming and a man.
Other forensic experts carried out their own tests on Reeva’s body and found heavy and numerous bruising caused by a blunt instrument.
Wounds found on the body were overlooked by the pathologist at the time and were not presented as evidence of abuse. Evidence was provided about the bullet holes on her body.
When the investigating police were questioned about an extensive pathological investigation they said "we believed it was an open and shut case”.
The second possibility presented by Pistorius.
Pistorius claimed that he thought there was an intruder in his toilet and felt that his life was in danger and he shot four times.
Pistorius knew the power of the weapon he was holding. He had used a gun before including firing a shot in a restaurant, and out of the window of a car. There is ample evidence of him practicing with powerful guns.
A man is standing outside the locked door of a toilet with a powerful handgun that could easily penetrate the door. Some intruder is inside locking himself in the toilet.
Would anyone in this situation really not talk to the person inside?
"Don't move I have a powerful gun and would shoot you”
"If you open the door I would shoot you I'm calling the police’
“Who are you and what are you doing in my toilet’
It is inconceivable that during this episode the person inside did not speak a word.
How can a man holding a powerful weapon against somebody locked in a small toilet fear for his life and shoot them to death.
How can a man fear for his life when we know for sure it was defenseless Reeva in the toilet?
How can a man not talk to the person inside just in case it was Reeva and not some intruder before shooting them to death?
In fact we know it was Reeva but he couldn't say that he talked to her because then he would know it was not an intruder and therefore have no defence at all.
So Reeva locked in the toilet did not utter a sound and he outside with a gun did not communicate with her, she locked herself in the toilet in a small apartment and he did not know this.
A man with a powerful handgun shooting someone to death using four shots is surely a man with rage. It is inconceivable that he did not know it was Reeva.

Oscar Pistorius: To address a miscarriage of justice.
Judge Masipa was shown by the Supreme Court of Appeal in Bloemfontein to have been wrong.
Her Culpable Homicide decision was overturned to one of murder.
The miscarriage of justice is that the case went back to Judge Masipa for the sentencing of Pistorius, now a convicted murderer.
Although there is a mandatory 15 year minimum for murder, she again gave him only six years of which he has a good chance of doing about three.
Evidence was given by neighbours who heard arguments lasting over an hour.
Witnesses said they heard a woman screaming.
Extensive bruising on Reeva’s body was not used in evidence.
Judge Masipa said that the screaming could have come from Pistorius.
A woman screaming for her life is very different from any man.
The Supreme Court decided Judge Masipa was wrong in her judgment.
Pistorius shot and killed Reeva who was locked in the toilet.
Did Pistorius before shooting her to death make sure that she was not in the toilet?
Of course not, because that will break down his version of events.
He said he feared for his life, but it was Reeva in the toilet. He feared her?
She obviously feared for her life because eventually he killed her.
Is it possible that Reeva did not utter one word during this episode?
A man pointing a gun at your door with you nowhere to hide, yes you would scream.
A chance for justice to be served in the resentencing scheduled in a few weeks.
