Oscar Pistorius At Court As Trial Resumes
Oscar Pistorius has arrived at court on a day that could be dominated by arguments over video footage broadcast in Australia.
The footage, commissioned by defence lawyers, shows the athlete re-enacting the night he shot Reeva Steenkamp.
The day started witháJudge Thokozile Masipa lifting the ban on publishing the psychologist's reports on the defendent's mental health - notes that have already been widely reported.á
The questioning of Professor Wayne Derman, the doctor for the South African Paralympic team, then resumed as the defence case draws to a conclusion.
ProfessoráDerman testified last week that Pistorius was vulnerable, stressed and would have been unable to flee because of disability.
But prosecutor Gerrie Neláput it to the court on Monday that ProfessoráDerman was close to Pistorious, travelled the world with him and therefore can't be objective.á
Pistorius, who is on trial for premeditated murder, denies deliberately killing his girlfriend, claiming he mistook her for an intruder.
He faces between 25 years and life in prison if found guilty.
