South Africa: Murder Accused Oscar Pistorius Appearance

press release

The case of the murder accused, Oscar Pistorius will again be back in the Pretoria Magistrate Court C on 19 August 2013.

The following is for your attention: We do confirm that the indictment will be served to the accused on his appearance on the day as afore mentioned. We also expect to have the trial starting early 2014 but we cannot at this stage confirm the exact date because this has to be agreed upon in court by all parties concerned.

It will therefore be inappropriate for NPA to comment about the charges beforehand.

The court session will start exactly at 09h00.
