All the things that Nel said were a problem seemed to me to be things that could be explained or could be mistakes. And Roux's timeline is hard to dispute and indeed Nel didn't even try. Do you say then that an experienced court will look at the timeline and say, oh well, that doesn't matter because of his poor testimony? I'd expect them to see that the evidence from the neighbours agrees with his version and conclude that it represented very strong evidence in his favour, at least as regards the primary case. DE is another matter but I was talking about the DD case.

    If you don't want to discuss further as all this is just repetition to you now, I understand.
    Go ahead and explain the crime scene photos not matching OP's testimony. Not only not matching but making his story impossible. We really don't need to go further than this and neither did Masipa if she was competent or not corrupt.

    Hold on. The defense is applying to leave to appeal the state's granted leave to appeal??

    Good grief.

    At the hearing back in December Roux already argued against the state's application to leave for appeal. I remember him telling the court that the appeal had no chance of success. Really Roux? If that were true, you would not be desperately trying to block the state from presenting the case to the SCA.

    He obviously is very worried about the outcome. As he should be... His client clearly committed murder.

    Ugh, indeed. This is well covered territory. We have discussed it ad nauseam. It's time to quit beating that dead horse.
