The trial could be dominated today by arguments over video footage broadcast in Australia. The footage, commissioned by defence lawyers, shows the athlete re-enacting the night he shot girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.
Pistorius's lawyers are furious. Attorney Brian Webber told the South African Press Association: "They have no right to broadcast the video. We will deal with it accordingly."
Judge: Before we start there is one issue that I want to deal with. On Friday afternoon, I had to verbally amend an order that I had made earlier in the week regarding PPP and QQQ.
Judge: This was after it came to my attention, that the attorneys representing the media, had come to agreement as to what could be published.
Judge: I said I would formally make the amendment in court on Monday. The order therefore reads as follows;
Judge: The reports PPP and QQQ may be published in retrospective.
Nel: As the court pleases.
Oldwage: As the court pleases.
Judge: You are still under oath Professor.
Oldwage: My lady, the difficulty rose with reference to what had been put to Prof. Derman.
Oldwage: "Did you read that he ran down that passage in the record?" by Mr. Nel.
Oldwage: "Did you confront him with this because you read it or heard it?" "No, it is in the record, my lady"
Oldwage: So when it becomes clear that Prof. Derman had relied on a statement from the record. At that point in time it is not a situation that Prof. Derman suggests.
Oldwage: He had read somewhere that there was a description of him running somewhere. It is clear. At that point in time, it should have been put to the witness as to where he ran.
Oldwage: The objection was on the basis that this type of questioning is misleading.
Oldwage: The best way to have done this, was to then have put the correct caption in the record to the witness. Otherwise it becomes confusing.
Oldwage: This could have been avoided.
Nel: My lady, Mr. Oldwage demanded an apology. I don't think I will apology.
Oldwage: I never said that.
Nel: Page 2893 my lady. My lady the reference that is important is I put to him at line 4. I will rephrase it.
Judge: Are we dealing with the objection on Thursday?
Nel: I asked no question about ran, the witness volunteered that information.
Nel: My lady, lines 23. I said, "That is because we do not have all these notes"
Nel: My lady, there could have been no misleading of this witness. Mr. Oldwage got up this morning and said the way I framed this question could be misleading.
Nel: I never framed this question.
Nel: My lady I am reading large sections of the record, otherwise it will not make sense.
Oldwage: My lady, the point is simply this that Mr. Nel puts it on the first occasion. "You read it in the record?"
Oldwage: Mr. Nel knew, which he did that there was only reference made to the running down the passage.
