According to reports, Oscar Pistorius told a BBC journalist yesterday that the state’s application to have him evaluated is ‘a joke’ and he feels that the day’s court proceedings had ‘gone well’ for him.  

The journalist, Andrew Harding, then tweeted Oscar’s comments, sending Twitter users into an uproar.  

   

   

Judge Thokozile Masipa ruled on Wednesday that Oscar will be sent for mental observation fro 30 days. This comes after forensic psychiatrist Merryll Vorster said Pistorius suffered from general anxiety disorder, which was listed as a mental illness.

The Pistorius family said after the ruling they had confidence in South Africa's judicial system to ensure a fair trial for Oscar.
