Roux: I can understand that, that is not all the accused was saying. Van Staden tells us that he picked up the carpet.
Roux: We know things like this happen. The state is saying that we are coming with a conspiracy theory.
Roux: My lady, I will show you another example. The extension cord that is missing.
Roux: We asked the state to please show us a photo as to how the plug was plugged into the extension cord.
Roux: They did yesterday, and it was seen that the extension cord was in fact longer then originally thought. It stands at the foot of the be.
Roux: Col. Van Staden states that he did not touch anything, I asked him if he is sure. He stated that he is. Then we show him a photo sitting with his hands on the clipper.
Roux: His answer to the photo was that he was testing the extension cord.
Roux: What he doesn't tell us what the position was of the multiplug, we don't know as we cannot find the time on the photo. We know that the curtains were moved.
Roux: The second part is this, we tried to understand the states case. The states will on the one hand say that Van der Merwe heard a female voice and then the shots.
Roux: The state will also then say that the other witnesses say they heard screaming and then the shots. That cannot be because then Van Der Merwe was wrong.
Roux: Van Der Merwe was not sleeping it was translated incorrectly. She stated that "sy het op gestaan" (she got up / or stood up). She was not sleeping.
Roux: On page 13 dealing with count 3 dealing with the shooting in the restaurant.
