Hope no one else has started this.

Those mistakes that Botha made could influence the whole outcome of the case

DreamsTurnToGoldDust Fri 22-Feb-13 13:57:15

That would be a travesty Dizzy, but it is looking like that.

I grant bail with the following restrictions. That's all he has to say. Or the defendent is remanded. Either sentence will do. Just quit the waffle.

Agree with you Dizzy - Botha came across terribly, and the basic mistakes he made could prove catastrophic for the prosecution.

BlingBubbles Fri 22-Feb-13 13:58:29

The SAP are so incompetent, a defence lawyer out if law school could win this case based on the bad police work !!! Shocking

He's tying himself in knots

bunchamunchycrunchycarrots Fri 22-Feb-13 13:59:33

He's coming across like a MN thread, back and forward trying to figure out which way his opinion goes.

The trouble with this is the bail hearing is being made into such a big thing that people might automatically assume guilty or innocent of the actual crime, rather than just getting or not getting bail iyswim

THIS IS NOT A TRIAL, why is he rehashing all the details we've heard already. I'm glad I don't live in a country with such a nonsense legal system.

PuffPants Fri 22-Feb-13 13:59:47

V.quiet in court - have they all nodded off?

sadeyedladyofthelowlandsase Fri 22-Feb-13 14:00:21

Dear Mr Nair,
We've known each other for quite a while now, so I hope you'll excuse me writing to you when you're at work. Oscar Pistorius killed his girlfriend. There's some debate over what happened. But are you going to give him bail?

Yours, in trembling anticipation,


sadeyedladyofthelowlandsase Fri 22-Feb-13 14:01:04

He's such a dripfeeder, isn't he?

DizzyHoneyBee Fri 22-Feb-13 14:01:54

I can see it all getting thrown out in the early stages if it even gets that far. It'd be very different here with a jury trial rather than a single judge. I don't see how any judge could proclaim guilt with the errors that have been made.

CrispyHedgeHog Fri 22-Feb-13 14:02:19

He sounds like he's been reading the threads on here, with the things he's having difficulty with

sadeyedladyofthelowlandsase Fri 22-Feb-13 14:03:52

it sounds like he keeps building up to announcing it, then backs off at the last minute.

Andro Fri 22-Feb-13 14:03:56

He's winding up

GuffSmuggler Fri 22-Feb-13 14:04:15

This is the biggest moment of Mr Nair's life and he's going to milk it.

DreamsTurnToGoldDust Fri 22-Feb-13 14:04:21

He is Andro winding us up!

BlingBubbles Fri 22-Feb-13 14:04:43

Guff, the legal system is not nonsense and this is not normal for a bail hearing, I think the magistrate knows very well the world is listening and is trying to be very thorough so there can be no calls for mistrials etc at a later date. The police have already made a cock up of it, the magistrate doesn't need to either.

But I do agree he is going on and on and on.....

I can imagine this magistrate and what he'd be like on a thread in AIBU, drip feeder with bells on!

Wouldn't it have been better if he put it in a written report and published it 90 minutes ago? That way he could have covered all these points, and everyone would know what they wanted to know.

Andro Fri 22-Feb-13 14:07:27

That he is Dreams, that he is.

LadyBeagleEyes Fri 22-Feb-13 14:07:47

I was just about to post that bunch but you got there first grin.
He sounds exactly like this thread, in that, like the rest of us, he hasn't got a fucking clue.
