Oscar Pistorius Trial Day 22: The Cross Ends

((HT: SABC Digital News))

Prosecutor Gerrie Nel rested his cross-examination of Oscar Pistorius after five days- maintaining that the sprinter lied, and is still lying, about his version of events from Valentine's Night, 2013. The prosecution is saying Pistorius lied about his shooting of Reeva Steenkamp was accidental- thinking she was a burglar holed up in the bathroom.

Pistorius shot through the door four times, hitting Steenkamp three and killing her. Nel delivered the prosecution's case and thinks his acts were intentional.

Here's Session One...

The defense called for redirect where lead attorney Barry Roux led Pistorius through his version of events. They then called a forensics expert who went through a noise analysis similar to that of the rounds Pistorius shot through the bathroom door.
