Judge takes close to two hours before announcing his ruling in Pistorius case
Zeenews Sports Bureau
Johannesburg: Magistrate Desmond Nair took excruciatingly long time to announce his judgement in the Oscar Pistorius bail plea hearing on Friday.
Here’s how as it happened»
Nair, who is known to quote Shakespeare in his judgements, took over 1 hour and 45 minutes to explain his ruling after which Pistorius’ family heaved in a sigh of relief shouting “Yes!”
Pistorius was granted bail on Friday by a Pretoria Court nine days after he was arrested on charges of allegedly murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in the early hours of Valentine’s Day earlier this month.
