    I think I read that all the rooms are on ground level.

    This site is really playing up for me at the moment.

    ahh ok.
    I'm having trouble on the site too, it kicked me out and a message said there's site maintenance but I'm back on now. *cross fingers* it lasts.

    wow, he was obviously covering for JR. He must have been paid money or he doesn't think domestic violence should be noted, it should be whether it's murder or not! :mad:

    Exactly! How can he leave out anything at all. That is not honest in my view, and neither does he come across to me as honest. It stinks IMO.

    I would like to add here what the Judge said about the other pathologist for the Defence, Dr. Loftus

    "... He was the only one who did not see the actual body; instead he, in my view, attempted to mislead the court to believe he had contacted a virtual autopsy..."

    Justice and common sense prevailed in this case, not money and tailored evidence submitted by hired experts. Thank you Judge Gayaat Salie-Hlophe!

    I suppose for completeness we ought to quote what she said about that awful woman who conducted the psychological autopsy of Susan - the one who got kicked out of court. I could say a few choice words about her - but I'll leave it at what the Judge said, for politeness' sake.

    I'll write it up later for the thread.

    They did!

    I'm glad the judge shows compassion for the witnesses caught up in a tragedy of JR's making, Daniels and Thompson specifically. I found Masipa definitely lacking in this area with regards to Reeva and the witnesses! Nasty lady. grrrr

    I thought this.was well said...
    Jason Rohde found guilty of wife's murder

    IMHO.. no-one should be let go when it comes to trying to victimize the victim further by smearing their memory. Especially when trying to buy their way out of jail with expensive laywers... once again, just my opinion. Job well done judge, you've done South Africa proud!

    48:05 minutes -

    "Doctor Panieri-Peter a forensic psychiatrist had been called by the accused's legal team to conduct a psychological autopsy of the Deceased as well as a psychiatric assessment of the Accused. Of concern in this matter is that in drafting her psychological autopsy Panieri-Peter drew her findings from a very limited supply of available material, according to her, as she principally consulted persons closely linked to the Accused. She also clearly misconstrued some information, some of her sources were unidentified - they sounded like no more than ghosts - leaving the Court to guess their veracity. She also included "evidence" not testified to by the Accused himself. The above calls into question the reliability of this witness's evidence and the court cannot therefore accept same.

    "To the extent that she had done a psychiatric assessment of the accused I accept that until this weekend the Accused did not demonstrate or show in the past a history of violence or physical threat to the Deceased. But on his own version, as well as other evidence, this weekend was different, for he did become a physical threat to her. He physically assaulted her. And so that must be seen in context with the view by Dr Panieri-Peter that the accused was not a physical threat, or his behaviour was not congruent to spousal intimate homicide."

    I just noticed that Jason, after having returned to the court room to hear whether his bail would be extended or not, did not have his tie on. Is that standard procedure? You know, it had to be removed so that he would not hurt himself? Anyone know?

    It is as he may be a suicide risk. Oh the irony

    Yes there was another one recently and I'm trying to remember who it was. Had his belt removed when he came back up from the cells. I'll have a think and see if I can remember, I don't think it was van Breda but it may have been.

    Ah I've remembered it was a US case, Tex McIver, had his belt taken off him as he was led from the courtroom after conviction.

    They probably removed his shoe laces and belt too.
    Great if his pants fell off, as that got him into trouble: his lover.:D:D:D
    Loved the Judge referring to his lover, several times.:):):)
