Nel: If it may pleas ethe court my lady.
Nel: Mr. Lin, I just want to start by looking at paragraph 8 of your report.
Nel: So you used a model and averages? If we deal with the differences of hearing, lik eyou dealt with on page 3.
Nel: What we are dealing with in this instance is listening?
Nel: So a listener would hear a sound and confirm a sound. That is what we confirm as listening?
Nel: I failed to see a date on this report.
Lin: It was finalized about a week ago.
Nel: When did you start working on the report?
Lin: More than a week ago.
Nel: I understand what you did, did you read the record?
Nel: You do understand and you were informed, that since the incident thee have been developments?
Lin: I tried to concentrate on scientific facts.
Nel: I appreciate that, I do. The one factor is when you went to the scene last week, it was more then a year. Trees have grown and new houses were built.
Nel: Did someone tell you that?
Lin: Yes, when I went there I inquired about the line of sight.
Nel: Did anybody sensitise you to the fact of the growth of trees and all of that?
Lin: I asked about the growth and buildings.
Nel: When you did the distance, who helped you with that?
Nel: The attorney of the accused.
Nel: At the site of 177m away, was the bedroom windows closed.
Nel: So nobody told you that the bedroom windows were wide open?
Nel: So you went to the scene, 177m, did you have access to that?
Lin: No, I never had access to that.
Nel: So now, you were shown photographs of that. This all happened in the last two weeks
Nel: You were also shown photographs of the premises 80meters away?
Nel: If I put to you that at the source of 177, the bedroom window was open, then we can exclude all of the portions of your model?
Nel: We are now in court and we can now exclude that.
Nel: Paragraph 5.6, you deal with the ability to determine a male and female scream. Your view is that you wouldn't think without exception be able to identify the difference?
