Pistorius Referred

Pistorius Referred

Judge Masipa has ruled in favour of the application made by the State.   Oscar Pistorius will be referred for psychiatric evaluation.

Prosecution and Defence have agreed they will work together on the finer details/specifics of the referral, and have these ready in report to be presented to the Court when it resumes on Tuesday 20th May 2014.

Judge Masipa said that the purpose of the referral is not to punish the accused and indicates that Pistorius being treated as an outpatient would be what she would wish.

Prosecutor Gerrie Nel said that they (he and Defence) will work together in preparing the conditions of referral order, keeping this in mind.
