The Oscar Pistorius murder trial will resume in the high court in Pretoria on Monday with state prosecutor Gerrie Nel continuing his cross-examination of firearms expert, Wollie Wolmarans.
Pistorius shot and killed his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, in February last year.
The paralympian says he believed that she was an intruder.
Wolmarans, who has more than three decades of experience in firearms, says it was hard to determine the sequence of shots fired by Pistorius.
He says because police probed the bullet holes, which could influence the state’s findings.
However, during cross-examination Nel managed to raise doubts about the former policeman’s testimony. Wolmarans conceded that his report was only finalised after Roger Dixon testified in court last month. Nel used this to suggest that Wolmarans had tailored his evidence to support the defence’s case.
The expert will bring in one of his reports, dated last year November, after Nel requested to see the findings.
