Johnson modified his notes three times before he emailed them to a lawyer friend. Roux is handing out copies of Johnson's notes to be entered into evidence.
Roux says that Johnson's notes were made on the 6th of March, 2013.
Johnson says he's not aware of the contents of his wife's notes. He says they didn't read each others notes.
Apparently Johnson's wife, Michelle Burger, destroyed the notes she made about the incident.
Roux asks why Johnson didn't give his notes to the police station who took his statement. Johnson says the captain didn't ask for them, but knew they existed.
Roux is back to the "striking similarities" between Johnson and his wife's statements. He apologizes for reading Johnson's cell phone number out loud. Doing so resulted in Johnson receiving many phone calls and at least one threatening voice mail.
Johnson says they had discussed the number of shots before they gave statements to the police.
Roux is now reading a portion of Johnson's testimony made the other day back to him. The section is about how Johnson's wife testified that she's good with rhythm because she was an aerobics instructor and was able to accurately count the number of shots she heard. Roux wants to know how Johnson could've known that his wife testified to that if they hadn't discussed their evidence.
And we're back. Neighbor Charl Johnson is on the stand, Pistorius lawyer Barry Roux is cross-examining him. Yesterday, Johnson said he'd made notes on a laptop about the night Reeva Steenkamp died . Roux asked to see those notes.
Pistorius has arrived at the court.
In other news from South Africa, Eskom (the national electricity provider) has begun "load shedding." This means that parts of the country are experiencing rolling blackouts. South Africa uses a lot of coal energy and recent rain has apparently dampened coal stock, making it burn slower. The load shedding is unlikely to affect court as business districts are usually exempt.
30 minutes out from day four of the trail against Oscar Pistorius.
Court is done for the day. Back again tomorrow at 9:30 a.m. local time.
Gerrie Nel asks if court can be adjourned so they have time to get the notes from Charl Johnson's computer.
Roux has a chance to respond. He asks if there was a wall between the child's table and the Pistorius table. Mrs. Loupis says yes, there was.
Roux is done with questions. Nel has one more question. He asks what Maria Loupis remembers from the table next to where Pistorius was seated. Loupis says there was a child sitting there.
Nel has nothing further for the witness. Mr. Roux begins cross-examination.
When Maria Loupis asked the table what had happened, Fresco told her the gun fell out of his pants and went off. She asked him what the first rule of gun ownership was, and he responded with "safety first." She then hit Fresco over the head.
Maria Loupis was sitting outside when the gun went off. She went and spoke to Darren Fresco, the gun owner.
If you're counting, only one out of six witnesses so far has agreed to be on camera.
Loupis is excused. Maria Loupis is the next witness and she doesn't want to be on camera either.
Loupis says he hasn't spoken to Pistorius since the incident and that Pistorius hasn't been back to the restaurant since.
Pistorius is taking notes while Loupis tells Gerrie Nel what happened at the restaurant.
Loupis is the owner of Tasha's.
Jason Loupis doesn't want to be on camera but because the state didn't give the court 24 hours notice the judge has to make a special order to allow it.
Judge Masipa excuses the witness. The next witness, Jason Loupis, is called.
Nel asks if Pistorius asked the gun owner to take the blame. Lerena doesn't know if that necessarily happened, but does know that the gun owner ultimately took the blame.
Roux has no further questions for the witness. Gerrie Nel does.
Roux says, according to another witness statement, that the gun owner apologized for giving Pistorius a loaded gun saying it was "his fault."
Roux says Pistorius was angry with the gun owner for giving him a loaded gun. Lerena can't remember that.
Roux says that Pistorius wanted to make sure the gun was safe and checked the chamber to do so. Pistorius told Roux that it was during this process that the gun discharged.
