Nel: Your focus and discussion with the accused was sounds?
Nel: I asked you if he every said he heard movement inside the toilet?
Nel: That makes the use of the word "I cannot recall" very interesting. That shows that you are biased to the accused. Why did you use that word?
WD: I still cannot recall.
Nel: I have an answer from you. Is that still your answer?
WD: My lady, Mr. Nel has asked me in many different spheres. I might have remembered it if OP had told me. My memory is very fuzzy, if he had told me, I cannot recall.
Nel: What can you not recall?
WD: I cannot recall that he said there was movement. Do I recall that he said there was movement? No I cannot recall.
Nel: Is it possible that he said that?
WD: I suppose it is because I cannot recall.
Nel: You see, you don't want to give an answer that will not benefit the accused. Is that not so?
WD: No, my lady that is not true.
Nel: The witness called by the defense, Mr. Wolmarans, said that the accused aimed at the door. Do you agree?
WD: If that is what is put to me, I do not know what Mr. Wolmarans said.
Nel: But that is what you said to me last week.
Nel: Why did he fire at the door?
WD: To nullify any threat.
nel: Now, he never identified to you what the threat was?
WD: He told me that he thought it was a burglar in the toilet.
WD: No, he never said that.
Nel: He never said that it was the door opening?
Nel: He never said that it was the burglar bumping against the magazine rack?
Nel: I have said it before but I will say it again. You are not objective in your testimony. Do you want to respond?
WD: No, he never said that.
WD: That is my understanding.
WD: My lady, I have responded before. I have observed him as his physician. I have backed up my report with documentation. I do not believe that I am biased.
Nel: Based on the accused' version, he with intention to kill shot the person behind the door. That is what he wanted to do and that is what he did.
Nel: I put it to you that your information in no ways puts his intentions in any way.
WD: Do you want me to respond to that?
WD: From what I understand it was his intention to shoot.
Nel: Thank-you my lady, I have nothing further.
Oldwage: With reference to the concept of vunerability, cupabled with anxiety. It was put to you tha ton the evening of 13 February 2013, OP was not anxious and was relaxed.
Oldwage: With reference to that. Does that person just become less anxious and less vunerable when relaxed?
WD: No. There are two types of anxiety.
Oldwage: Second question also relates to what Mr. Nel put to you. On the morning on question, our client simply walked away?
WD: No it does not fit. Because there is a significant perceived threat, one will not simply walk away. If one believes that the threat will be faster than you. Then the fleeing will not be possible.
