Roux now points out that Hilton Botha, the original investigating officer who was removed from the case, didn't testify. He also points out that another officer said that no one else was at the scene - despite a photo showing another person at the scene.
Pistorius says he didn't think police deliberately moved the fan, he said that police didn't know his version of events at the time and probably moved items looking for other pieces of evidence.
Roux reads from Pistorius' evidence in chief.
Roux moves on the Nel's assertion that Pistorius say there's a conspiracy against him. From inside the court room:
The defense asked for the extension cord so they could test to see if it reached. The state couldn't find it, they said they'd returned it to the scene. The defense then found a photo that showed it could in fact reach. Roux isn't impressed that they were given that photo two days ago.
Roux moves on to the fan and the multi plug. Nel said "take it from me," the fan couldn't reach the multi plug.
Roux moves on to a second photo that he says shows a police officer touching and moving evidence despite the fact that the officer said he didn't move anything.
Roux points out that in the photo, there's a hand holding the curtain back. He says this shows that she actually didn't have a perfect view.
The Stipps are neighbors and gave evidence for the state.
Roux starts by referencing a photo taken from Mrs. Stipp's bedroom, which Nel said had a direct line of sight to Pistorius' bathroom.
Yesterday he was able to refute some of the assertions made by the state. He's continuing on that line today.
Barry Roux continues his closing arguments.
Court is back in session.
Judge Masipa says we'll pick up again tomorrow at 9:30 a.m local time.
Roux is done with the beginning of his corrections. He asks for the daily adjournment.
Roux says tomorrow they'll go through a specific timeline
Roux says the state is ignoring other reasonable scenarios.
Roux accuses the state of avoiding certain important facts
Roux points out that the onus is on the state to show burden of proof.
Nel is running through what he sees as corrections to the state's case.
This relates to the possession of ammunition. Roux says the firearms control act says the ammunition needs to be stored in a safe, it doesn't specify whose safe it needs to be kept in.
Roux says that Pistorius was negligent when he handled the gun at Tasha's. He says Pistorius isn't running away from that charge.
Roux says there was a translation error and that the case used the incorrect version to make part of their case. He corrects that record.
Roux says they're not saying conspiracy, they're saying the scene was disturbed.
Roux says he'll show court a photo they received yesterday that shows the extension cord can reach the plug. Roux says this is a concern - the state had this photo and yet acted as if the chord wouldn't reach.
Roux references the extension chord that police said couldn't reach another plug.
Roux says the scene was disturbed by officers who didn't realize the significance of some of the objects.
Roux points out that one of the initial officers didn't know if the fan was on or off when they arrived, and the same officer was able to walk onto the balcony which wouldn't have been possible if the fan was where the state says it was.
Roux says he's not saying there's a conspiracy against Pistorius, rather that there's an issue with items moved.
Roux now brings up Hilton Botha - the original investigating officer who was removed after it was found he was facing an attempted murder charge. Roux says Botha made false, incriminating statements against Pistorius on purpose.
Roux says the state is in possession of affidavits by policemen who say that items were moved.
Roux points out multiple instances of Nel calling Pistorius a liar. Nel says he only found one example.
Roux's third point will relate to Pistorius' anxiety
Roux's second point says the state cannot take the other counts into account when deciding the murder charge.
Roux's first point - the state never gave an explanation for what the first set of noises were.
Roux beings by pointing out what he calls "material mistakes" made by the state.
