Oscar story plausible

20 February 2013, 18:47

On Sunday, after reading the gory allegations about Oscar’s guilt or innocence, I wrote an article about whether the reporting was ethical and whether the conduct of the SAPS required censure from the police who leaked the information.

My gripe was that the SAPS had no right to release information to the media and I questioned the media’s “ethics”for publishing the information. 

The spanner in the works is the blood on the bat as well as the crushed skull theory, which was clearly a figment of someone’s imagination. 

I also stated in my article that  “These reports are from non-public documents and contains information known only to investigators.  When people are involved in civil litigation one party will usually leak information to the media to portray another in a bad light.  However, when the State has charged one party with a crime such as murder, one has to question what is the purpose of the State unlawfully leaking information to the media.  The answer is very clear, to sway public opinion against the accused.”

What is emerging in court today, the lead investigator is somewhat agreeing with Oscar’s version which means culpable homicide. 

In the public opinion, Oscar is guilt.  But what is worse, is the lead investigating making wild allegations on the stand and verbally sparring with the Defense Counsel. 
Not good for our image. 
Our SAPS appears to be key stone cops.  Mr. Dewani must be laughing at this.  No chance now that he will be extradited.
