Bulletin: Oscar Pistorius: Prosecutor questions him over alleged scene tampering; SA Breaking News.

STORY: "(Prosecutor) Nel questions Pistorius over alleged scene tampering," by reporter Mara Ispas, published by SA Breaking News on April 9, 2014.

GIST: "Prosecutor Gerrie Nel on Wednesday challenged murder-accused Oscar Pistorius over the alleged tampering, contamination, and disturbance of the crime scene at his Silver Woods Estate home. Nel read out a section in Pistorius’s plea explanation in which it stated that the defence will show during the course of the trial that the crime scene was tampered with. Nel asked Pistorius if that was the reason he pleaded not-guilty. Pistorius said he pleaded not-guilty because what the state says happened did not happen, and at the time of the bail application when he pleaded not-guilty, photographs showing the tampering of the crime scene had not yet been made known. Pistorius said the gun, cricket bat, cellphones, a disc, the two fans, and the curtains had all been moved and crime scene photographs would show this. He said police officers were not wearing protective clothing. “It’s your case, it’s your plea explanation,” said Nel. “There is a picture of a policeman unplugging the fan to plug in a cellphone, so yes, I’d say it was tampered with,” said Pistorius. He added that experts will testify what was moved, but he could not say what their names are."
