Oscar Pistorious

The state has opposed Paralympian Oscar Pistorius' application to appeal his murder conviction on the grounds that there was "no reasonable prospect" of him succeeding.

This was according to its opposing affidavit lodged with the Constitutional Court.

"It is our respectful submission that the SCA committed no errors of law and that the arguments by the applicant are without merit and contrived," senior deputy director of public prosecutions in the priority crime litigation unit, Andrea Johnson, said in the affidavit.
