    Leach summarises quickly the states version and then goes in careful depth of Pistorius version and then the other versions.

    Says Pistorius was a a bad witness..."in the light of these contradictions. There were other inherent..." problems but that these issues the judge seems to say does not change the judgement of the high court.

    So Leach is focussing on making sure that what the decision has the full background

    Wise given the public interest.

    #OscarPistorius Leach: eventualis - the person foresees the risk of death but continues with act, and reconciles with foreseeable outcome.

    He goes into the three questions of law that prosecution brought forward in the appeal…

    Talks about history of how questions of law can be brought to supreme court, unlike corrections of fact.

    Now is talking about dolus, the three categories, in terms of definitions and intention.

    Finally, talking about the case in terms of dolus eventualis...

    After quoting Masipa judgement in length now Leach starts...

    "I find the reasoning to be confusing in various respects, the rehetorical question how could the deceased have forseen...wrongly applies a subjective rather than an objective approach to the subject of dolus"

    At last some sharp legal logic!

    "Incorrect test applied"

    "Fundamental error"

    #OscarPistorius Leach is pretty much saying what I've heard senior advocates ranting about in legal chambers for months now.

    "the distinction between subjective foresight and objective foreseablility must not become blurred. Moreover the court found...person behind the door not to have been reasonably foreseeable"

    "but this is confused with the...decision that the accused was found guilty of culpable homicide on the basis that a reasonable person under the same circumstances would have foreseen the..."

    Yes

    BOOM!

    "The Trial Court misdirected itself..." re DE

    So looks like Nel gets over that DE hurdle - at least that absurdity is corrected.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Masipa conflated tests for DD and DE. And her conclusion that it was not DE was based on Reeva being in the bedroom. The trial court misdirected itself and the issue was mixed fact and law.
