    The new thread for Jason Rohde is up and running and is completely up-to-date.

    http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...2#post13688722

    I hope you enjoy it. I know it's early days, but I'm hoping we're on a winner.

    Get up to speed with the #VanBreda trial with this new special section we've put together http://bit.ly/2ydvJX0

    "I cannot explain why none of the DNA profile of Marli was not found on the axe" - Dr. Olckers


    I would really love to know a reason for this, if only an expert could give examples of why or how this didn't occur besides there was another axe.

    (Finally back home again to my beloved computer . I was using my daughter's iPad and had no idea how to copy and paste text and pics. )

    I'm here L2L, but only to check if anything is happening. I'll be posting tweets in the Rohde trial and Prime will be doing CP and HvB. So far though, none of them have started.

    Prime and I have decided to work on a rotational basis, so tomorrow I'll be here.

    Thanks, JJ. You both do a fantastic job! I'll skip from one to the other.

    Prime, if you're lurking here, CP is moving to another court and they won't be starting until 11.15. The mistress is supposed to be taking the stand. She has friends and family in court now.

    ETA. I've just added the above info to the CP thread in case someone goes there.

    Olckers: the document is written by me, parts discussed with counsel, but these are my "own words"

    Olckers: I wrote the report "within their mandate", Judge Desai asks what the witness means by this

    J Desai: did you change or amend your report in any way after discussing it with counsel? Olckers: No


    Olckers: I sent a draft report to counsel, then correct errors

    Olckers: final report was done after Col. Otto testified

    J Desai: were you aware of testimony of other experts when you drafted report? Olckers: Yes

    We're tweeting live from the Cape High Court today where the cross-examination of Dr. Olckers begins

    Dr. Olckers admits that her findings were a 'summary' when questioned by Adv. Galloway on her report

    Dr. Olckers: the scope narrowed in my findings, which is why it should be considered a summary.


    https://twitter.com/ajnarsee

    Galloway: So what you reported on is what you were asked?

    Olckers: Yes the scope did narrow and I reported on this, it's not the full aspect of problems we picked up on

    Olckers: I literally focused in most pertinent issues at a scientific level

    J Desai: so the final report is based in evidence, and testimony and issues raised by counsel?

    J Desai: Did you not prepare and independent report, purely scientific, before your mind was clouded by evidence presented


    [Olckers did not]


    (Dirty tricks by Botha and witness, Olckers! Nothing surprises me anymore!)

    It would be very useful to produce a report before your mind is clouded by other evidence - Judge Desai to Dr. Olckers

    Adv. Galloway now questioning Dr. Olckers about her employment and experience


    https://twitter.com/ajnarsee

    Adv Combrink Objects. J Desai cuts him off, saying objection is noted, things get heated

    Adv Galloway: expert opinion is supposed to be objective, you should make concessions even if it harms defence? Olckers, agrees

    G: your positions listed in your CV are mostly academic or administrative? Olckers: Agrees

    Adv. Galloway touching on the career of Dr. Olckers, which would appear to be mostly of an academic and administrative nature

    Olckers: at present I do very little lab work, I train other academics and scientists


    https://twitter.com/ajnarsee

    G: closest practical lab work that you did was listed in 1985?

    Olckers: goes through her practical experience, incl work for PHD for John Hopkin, 1992-1995
