Times journalist Lucy Bannerman has cited Oscar Pistorius' lawyer as saying that his client is not getting "special treatment" by being allowed to stay in a police station, rather than in prison.
#Pistorius 's defence counsel told me after hearing, it was unusual to allow murder suspects to stay in a police station rather than prison.
His lawyer says #Pistorius is not getting special treatment, by being allowed to stay in policestation; it's to accommodate visiting hours.
Pistorius will concentrate on defending himself against allegations that he murdered his model girlfriend on Valentine's morning.
The South African press say the weapon is a key piece of police evidence, but Pistorius' family said the death is a 'tragic accident.'
The family and management of Oscar Pistorius have released a statement disputing the murder charge against him 'in the strongest terms'.
