Oscar Pistorius’s murder trial resumed on Tuesday with Judge Thokozile Masipa giving media permission to blog and tweet during court proceedings.
Judge Thokozile Masipa and her two assessors Janet Henzen-Du Toit and Themba Mazibuko made the slow daily procession to their seats in the front of the court.
The judge said that after someone gave her information about blogging and tweeting, “in respect of this witness, blogging and tweeting is allowed”.
Pistorius is accused of murdering Steenkamp on 14 February 2013 at his home in Silver Woods, Pretoria.
He has pleaded not guilty to that and a number of charges under the Firearms Act.
Defence lawyer Barry Roux resumed cross-examination on Tuesday.
