A South African state prosecutor said to the judge in Oscar Pistorius' murder trial that the athlete was caught up in a "snowball of lies". Gerrie Nel asked the judge to reject the Olympic and Paralympic track star's defence as "devoid of any truth".
The court will have to reject his evidence. The court must have a credible version from the accused. The court should have no difficulty in rejecting his full version of events, not only as not reasonably possibly true, but in essence as being absolutely devoid of any truth.
Since the trial opened in early March, Nel has portrayed Pistorius as a gun-obsessed hothead who shot 29-year-old Steenkamp four times through a locked toilet door where she was taking refuge after a heated argument.
