Oscar Pistorius court case delayed until August as judge claims he faces 'trial by media'

Oscar Pistorious appeared in court today over the killing of his girl Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day this year, but the trial was postponed until August 19th after prosecutors asked for more time to build the murder case against him.

The judge in the case also said the Paralympian has faced 'trial by media' due to the relentless reporting on the case. Oscar will remain on bail until the trial begins later this year or early next year.

Meanwhile, Rugby player Francois Hougaard, who is also late Reeva Steenkamp's ex boyfriend is on a list of prosecution witnesses set to appear in the case. There are are unconfirmed reports that Francois and Reeva were exchanging text messages the night she was killed. Reeva was holding her mobile phone when she was shot inside the toilet.

Also on the witness list are a few of Oscar's neighbours who claimed they heard loud shouting coming from Oscar's home on the evening Reeva was killed.

Reeva's mum also claimed in a TV interview recently that her daughter and Oscar argued a lot
in the weeks leading up to her death and Reeva told her she was afraid of being in Oscar's company.

Justice delayed is justice denied o! Complexities abound in the judiciary of every country though, and his media thingy is glaring though.

Linda please the rugby player is also not her boyfriend. He's her ex and he's friends with Oscar as well. Please report correctly.

"Although Hougaard and Steenkamp allegedly had a romantic past, the two remained close friends and shared an agent; Hougaard was even said to be on friendly terms with Pistorius. Shortly before Steenkamp’s death, Hougaard posted a photo of the three enjoying a meal together on Twitter."

There's no need to report incorrectly to soil the girl's name. She only had one boyfriend.

This guy should be jailed for life without parole. He purposely killed the girl out of jealousy. Now, the question is, when he fired the first shot, the girl must have screamed Abi ? If dem don shoot u before abeg answer dis question. (runs away). No vex.

She was afraid of being in his company but she slept in his house on valentine's day.

The prosecution's story against Oscar will make them loose.

Bill said...

If it is left to linda, oscar has already been sentenced and hanged! its so obvious that you have found him guilt....All your write ups on him are labeling him a killer without thinking what if he didn't intentionally kill her!

If your relative or someone close to you is in oscar position, trust me your write up will tilt instantly

Did Oscar deny d fact dat he killed her? No he didn't which makes him a killer by defination. The actus reus had already bin determined, wat is left is d mens rea nd now dats a whole different ball game.

Hi... She wrote ex-boyfrnd... U shd prolly read it again

Anonymous said...

LOL @ Annoynous 2:18, the other anonymous was right. she changed it later. The first time i read it as well, it said the rugby player was also her boyfriend, before comments came in. She probably changed it after the comment alerted her to the error.
