    Nel reads in Afrikaans again and translates: because somebody has been convicted and sentenced, by the time an appeal is heard, the accused will have served part of his sentence. That’s par for the course, says Nel, whether it’s the state or defence which appeals.

    The purpose of this application is the state saying there should be a harsher sentence and a conviction of murder.

    Nel moves on to another case law example. Barsson? Parsson?

    Oh my live feed takes a break as Nel thumbs thru notes.

    On a totally unrelated side note -

    [ Am I the only one who thinks Gerrie Nel is hot when he speaks Afrikaans? OK, he's hot when he speaks English, too. ]

    Maybe it is just me, but Nel seems a bit nervous or awkward in his communication with My Lady. Like he KNOWS she is put off or something.
