Page 14, item 31:
OP States (asks) IF he did not shoot in self defense, then why did he shoot?
OP is asking the court to explain OP's mental and thought process. How arrogant!

They are not required to state his intentions but only to state, upon evaluation, his comments were not believable.

Excerpt:

"In South Africa, appeals must be based on questions around the interpretation of the law, rather than questions based on facts surrounding a case.

Prof. Stephen Tuson at the Wits School of Law in Johannesburg said there was no guarantee that the Constitutional Court would hear Pistorius’ case even though it has the authority to hear any matter, including those deemed to be non-constitutional.

The April 18 date for sentencing will allow the Constitutional Court time to decide whether it will take Pistorius’ case, said prosecution spokesman Luvuyo Mfaku. The defense has 15 days to submit appeal papers to the court, he said.

Prosecutor Gerrie Nel was doubtful about Pistorius’ appeal prospects.

“We’re not convinced that the accused has made out a good case and that his application to the Constitutional Court will be successful, but we acknowledge that he has the right to bring such an application,” said Nel.

The appeals court had said that regardless of who was behind the door, Pistorius should have known someone could be killed if he fired multiple times. Under South African law, a person can be convicted of murder if he or she foresaw the possibility of someone dying through their actions and went ahead anyway."

Excerpt:

THE LATIN TERMS BEHIND THE LAW

"In overturning the trial ruling, Supreme Court of Appeal Justice Lorimer Eric Leach unpacked exactly how the court interprets dolus eventualis. To prove dolus, the state had to prove that the perpetrator committed the act that led to the victim’s death with the intention to kill. Under South African law, there are two forms of dolus — directus and eventualis. Simpler to understand, directus describes the direct intention to kill.

The principle of eventualis rests on the idea that the perpetrator may have foreseen that someone would be killed by their actions, and went ahead.

That’s the chance Pistorius took when he fired hollow bullets — designed to fragment on impact — from a 9mm pistol through the door of a “very small” toilet cubicle, Leach said. Under this principle, the identity of the victim should not matter, the judge said.

“I have no doubt that in firing the fatal shots the accused must have foreseen and therefore did foresee that whoever was behind the toilet door might die, but reconciled himself to that event occurring and gambled with the person’s life,” said Leach."

Austrian woman who says Oscar Pistorius flirted with her for months online while on trial for killing Reeva Steenkamp... until he broke off all contact when convicted


Pair exchanged thousands of flirty messages on Instagram and WhatsApp
Woman, named as Nina F, claims he even told her he wanted to marry her
But she didn't know his real identity until days before he was found guilty
After his conviction, Pistorius 'wept down phone and broke off all contact'
Nina 'tried to see him while he was under house arrest, but guard refused'
By ALLAN HALL FOR MAILONLINE

PUBLISHED: 06:48 EST, 18 December 2015 |

"....During their cyberspace romance, he allegedly used prepaid mobile phone cards and switched his mobile phone number several times.

Then on October 14 last year – ten days before he was found guilty of killing Reeva in his Pretoria home on Valentine's Day 2013 – he sent her a message saying: 'You don't know who I am?'

Bild printed the extract of a conversation below on that day. It went as follows:

Pistorius: 'If I tell you who I really am, you will never talk to me.'

Nina: 'I want to know it. NOW.'

Pistorius: 'You don't know who I am?'

Nina: '??'

Pistorius: 'Oscar.'

She wrote back: 'Yes, cleeeeeear. And now f*** you.' ..."


"....On October 9 on WhatsApp, he wrote: 'Baby... I want to marry you... spend my life with you... forever... you're ready for a life with me?'...."

Pistorius seeks to appeal against murder conviction
11 January 2016

"...His lawyers say the appeals court made fundamental errors, claiming in appeal papers that the court "acted unlawfully and unconstitutionally when it rejected the factual finding of the Trial Court and replaced it with a contrary factual finding of its own".

Pistorius's lawyer, Andrew Fawcett, says the appeal is now in the hands of the director of public prosecutions, who must decide whether there are grounds for appeal. If so, the case will go before the Constitutional Court.

The South African made history by becoming the first amputee sprinter to compete at the Olympics, in London in 2012. He competed in the 400m, wearing carbon-fibre blades to run against able-bodied athletes...."

The ruling by the Constitutional Court clears the way for a judge to sentence the double-amputee runner for murder at a hearing scheduled for April 18.

Pictured: The shocking injuries that 'prove' Oscar Pistorius attacked Reeva Steenkamp with an air rifle and cricket bat before shooting her dead, forensic experts claim

snipped:
Another image of a dented steel plate on the side of the bath also appears to support the idea he wielded the bat in fit of rage.

Speaking to Jane Flanagan for The Sun, Thomas Mollet said: 'Oscar went after her with a cricket bat, infuriated that she locked herself away from him.

'To scare and frighten her, he hit the door with the cricket bat about two to three times and also hit the steel plate against the bathtub wall.'

Oscar’s weird followers live in a fantasy world

Cybershrink analyses why some people have elevated Oscar Pretorius to a cult figure, making him the centre of their universe.

Are the boring Pistorians transforming into a cult? At the recent hearing to postpone his sentencing, this odd bunch of people again emerged, like snails after the rain.

They must have to take time off work (if they actually do work) and their appearance must have cost them money, like the women claiming that they came from abroad.  Why do they do this?

Oscar Pistorius mystery: ‘Tape and bin liners found near Reeva Steenkamp’s body’

FRESH mystery has been sparked into the death of Oscar Pistorius’s girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp after new evidence claims bin bags and tape were found close to her body.

By Vincent Wood

PUBLISHED:  03:21, Sat, Apr 23, 2016   | UPDATED: 03:41, Sat, Apr 23, 2016

Disgraced Paralympian Pistorius is due to be sentenced later this year for Ms Steenkamp’s murder on Valentines Day 2013.

But gruesome photos of the scene of Ms Steenkamp’s death have been revealed by investigators which has prompted new mystery around her murder.

Experts Calvin and Thomas Mollett analysed various pieces of evidence for their book ‘Oscar vs The Truth’ - including CCTV stills of the young model as she drove into Pistorius’s estate.

They claim the top she was wearing as she drove in was the same as when her body was found, but that the bullet holes do no match up with her wounds.

The brothers have alleged that the Paralympian redressed his partner following the murder.

Thomas Mollett said: “It can only have been put on afterwards. We can’t say when or why he decided to put it on her, we can only say it was certainly not worn at the time she died.

"There is absolutely no sign of any hole in the vest resulting from the bullet wound to her hip – and the vest is a long one.

"There is no sign of the bullet that struck her chest. And there is very little blood on the vest and it would have been really soaked with blood if she’d been wearing it at the time of the shooting."


Ms Steenkamp was killed on Valentines day amid a "violent struggle"

May 5, 2016 | 01:15AM PT

LONDON — Content Media has picked up the international sales rights to an Oscar Pistorius documentary feature, which will be introduced to distributors in Cannes next week. The film, titled “Pistorius,” follows the rise and fall of the inspiring, Olympic hero turned convicted murderer.

Vaughan Sivell (“Mr. Calzaghe”) is directing the movie, which is in production, and is producing with Sean Richard for Western Edge Pictures, and the Gennaker Group. “Pistorius” is described as “Making a Murderer” meets “Senna” — “a riveting true-crime story about a beloved sports icon.”

Oscar Pistorius film to be introduced at Cannes

New feature documentary described as 'Making a Murderer meets Senna'

May 9, 2016

~Snipped~

"Vaughan has struck a controversial nerve with his timely investigation of the man, the trial and country behind one of the most complex and compelling stories of our times."

The feature is expected to be delivered in full by early 2017.

"For us, it's the story of South Africa alongside the story of Oscar. It's so cinematic, it's a real once-in-a-lifetime project in terms of scale," said Sivell earlier this year.

According to Screen Daily, the film will be made in collaboration with Daily Telegraph journalist Gareth A Davies, who has known Pistorius since he was 16. The production also hopes to interview the Paralympian as well as the Steenkamp family.

Oscar Pistorius's family hits out at 'astonishing' new claims

27 April

New claims that Oscar Pistorius assaulted girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp before shooting her have been dismissed as absurd by the Paralympian's family.

Pistorius has always maintained that he believed there was a dangerous intruder in his toilet cubicle when he fired into its door and killed Steenkamp, a version of events accepted by original trial judge, Thokozile Masipa.

However, in their book, Oscar vs the Truth, amateur investigators Thomas and Calvin Mollett claim there is evidence to suggest Pistorius battered his girlfriend with a cricket bat and shot her with an air gun before killing her with a revolver.

Oscar Pistorius claims he is too 'depressed' to testify in sentencing hearing for murdering Reeva Steenkamp as he complains he was paraded like an animal in a cage while in prison and saw a rape victim hanging dead in his cell

"....Oscar Pistorius has claimed he is too depressed to testify in the sentencing hearing for murdering Reeva Steenkamp, a court was told today.

The shamed athlete is back at the High Court in Pretoria for the hearing, where state and defence lawyers will argue for and against Pistorius serving a lengthy sentence of up to 15 years for the fatal shooting of Reeva three years ago.


However, the double amputee, 29, will not return to the witness box in a desperate bid to convince the court that he is a 'changed man', as his psychologist says he is too depressed to testify. ..."

"....His social worker, psychiatric experts, prison officials and a possibly a member of his own family are on the list of possible witnesses who will be called to speak in support of him.

Judge Masipa is under enormous pressure to redeem herself following the high profile challenge her judgement received by South Africa's most senior judges.

The hospital wing at Kgosi Mampuru II jail, which accommodated Pistorius, for his 12 month incarceration, has a single cell ready to accommodate him, prison officials confirmed.

Pistorius has been living under comfortable house arrest behind high walls at his uncle Arnold's sprawling villa since he was released from jail in October last year. He has not been seen in public since his last brief court appearance in April.

Last month, a new book presented fresh evidence in the case after an analysis of crime scene photographs and post mortem results which had not been put before the original trial.

Investigator Thomas Mollett highlighted a bullet wound on Reeva's body which was compatible with a bullet fired by Pistorius' air gun. A similar projectile was found in the door of the bedroom where neighbours claimed they had heard a violent row between the pair.

A cricket bat, which the sprinter claimed had only been used to break down the locked door behind which Reeva was dying from four gun shot wounds, had also been used to attack the reality TV star....."

Yep. He is all that and more. Lessons from Stanford rapist and the Texas "affluenza boy"... among others. Cool

IMO, he does not want to take the stand because he can't recall his earlier statements, does not know what new info the State has against him, and he is out of crying tissues and vomit buckets. He has got nothing. And he knows it! So he has others sitting in the court blubbering for him... like he is the victim!

Roux is now saying there is a deception that #OscarPistorius intended to kill #ReevaSteenkamp He calls this an enemy of the matter.


Martin Cuddihy ‏@MartinCuddihy · 8m
I suppose now we move to argument between Nel and Roux for aggravation and mitigation of sentence for #OscarPistorius

Def atty Rouux should not be comparing this case to the one where the father fired ONCE in the night killing his daughter. OP fired FOUR times.... and tell us of the blood above the head board, please! And the porn on the tablet/phone found with the cover ripped off in the bedroom... Stay on topic, please!
