    Thank you everyone for the updates on the previous threads, I think I'm giving up on this one now - for the time being at least

    Botha is really taking the p**s with this trial. He has got the cheek to say they are losing money, yet he keeps wanting to adjourn. I really hope after all this Henri gets found guilty.

    So Dr O says that most of the DNA samples are invalid for 3 reasons - 1. they used or relied on sample sizes less than 1 nanogram 2. there was no break in sequence between testing samples from the same case 3. the hemastix weren't recorded properly (either photographed or expiry dates, not sure).

    Apologies if spellings are off!

    Just listened to the short recording of this morning's proceedings. Desai came down hard on Botha.

    I've replayed this part several times but I can't get the words he said at this point, see if anyone else can pick it up (I've marked the video to start at the relevant place) - "if there is a cost factor I am quite prepared to adjourn these proceedings and appoint ? counsel ?. That can't be a factor that determines the future progress of this matter."

    I can only think he is saying ProBono counsel followed by something else, but it doesn't sound like that.

    Clearly Judge Desai is a religious man as this term is not commonly used. Equally, it is clear, IMO, that Botha worships at the money altar.

    So now we know without a doubt what will happen if Botha & co withdraw from the case.
