    This application is distasteful to all parties. Except perhaps some parties who stand to profit from such.

    Masipa agrees the photos can be released
    I think Roux said that he would be out of Jo'burg on the 7th and asked for the 6th

    So it comes down to public interest.

    But if the protected party wants it rescinded than the Judge should comply,

    Correct decision
    Thanks. I guess I have just gotten used to Masipa surprises. And when she started asking Nel didn't the State originally want them sealed or whatever I thought ...

    MrJitty - me again! So, since it is almost a month away until sentencing this means the interview will air before then. I know that the judge will not take that into consideration, but do you reckon she will watch it?

    Also, since the interview seems to have been a BIG miscalculation on the Pistorius side, do you think they would have assumed that sentencing would be completed by then?

    It wasn't really a hard one and its not unusual for the Judge to consider it during an adjournment.

    Once she consulted with her clerks they would have realised pretty swiftly the defence had no standing to oppose it

    Who knows - this is pretty crazy territory!

    I would have said it is a huge contempt of Court to do this.

    I can't imagine any High Court Judge who would be happy about it - indeed I know some who would hit the roof

    That should be 6 photos, 135-140.

    I'm on catch up now.

    Carl Pistorius actually tweeted that from inside the court room to the world. I am so sickened by this family. Arnold knows full well that the brother is constantly tweeting to the public and then later states that the family so rarely talk to the media ( The TV interview was them replying to "one media offer." )

    Who stands to profit? - the press I assume he means the media , but there is an ambiguity in his phrase as if the family stand to gain somehow ( CP is so dumb, careless wording. )

    Yet Oscar parading around on his stumps as a "victim" wasn't "distasteful"?
    Oscar giving exclusive TV interviews isn't "distasteful"?
    Oscar dragging his sister around a bathroom in a video then released to Aus press wasn't "distasteful"?
    etc etc
    This family make me quite weary.

    Anyone who sees those photos will be shocked. As Nel said, they're not from Saayman (post mortem) which means they're crime scene pics and will be graphic and no doubt close-up. Roux will now have a client who is hated more than ever.

    no idea what the thought process could possibly be behind that itv interview. just seems to be a massive contradiction of the defence stance.

    op not fit to take the stand; loses focus; forgets to wake up in time, etc etc... will be interesting to see how he comes across in the interview
