Pistorius back in court for sentencing hearing

first_img#OscarPistorius during break OP, still looking like he’s hardly slept, shares a moment with uncle and brother. Photo via @johnrayitv Oscar Pistorius returned to court Tuesday a day after being described as a “broken” man who should be hospitalised rather than jailed, as he attended sentencing for the murder of his girlfriend three years ago.The double-amputee killed Reeva Steenkamp, a model and law graduate, in the early hours of Valentine’s Day in 2013, saying he mistook her for an intruder when he fired four times through the door of his bedroom toilet.Pistorius tried to greet Steenkamp’s relatives as he entered the court on Tuesday but they did not respond.On Monday, the 29-year-old “Blade Runner” was red-eyed and tearful on the first day of his sentencing hearing at the High Court in Pretoria.“He has developed a serious psychiatric condition which has become worse in the past two years,” psychologist Jonathan Scholtz, called by the defence, told the court on Monday. Pistorius has shunned the media during years of intense coverage since Steenkamp’s killing, but his family have revealed that he has given his first interview, due to air on British broadcaster ITV later this month.The interview drew a sharp attack on Monday from state prosecutor Gerrie Nel, who said it proved that Pistorius was capable of testifying.“He would rather give his version to the TV than to court,” said Nel, who accused psychologist Scholtz of being biased.Pistorius was released from jail last October to live under house arrest at his uncle’s mansion in Pretoria after serving one year of his five-year sentence for culpable homicide.Since being convicted of murder, Pistorius has been on bail and allowed to leave his uncle’s house at set times, but not travel further than 20 kilometres (12 miles) without permission.The hearing — held in the same courtroom as the original trial — is scheduled to last one week.Pistorius has always denied killing Steenkamp in a rage and, during his dramatic seven-month trial in 2014, sobbed in the dock as details of his lover’s death were examined in excruciating detail.The year before he killed Steenkamp, Pistorius became the first double-amputee to race at Olympic level when he appeared at the London 2012 games.Share on: WhatsApp Steenkamp’s parents were both in court, and her father Barry may take the witness stand to ask the court to impose a lengthy punishment.If he does, it will be the first time that one of Steenkamp’s parents has testified in the case. “Further imprisonment would have a detrimental effect on him.”Scholtz said that during recent interviews Pistorius had displayed signs of “post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety disorder and depressive disorder”.In March, Pistorius’s lawyers failed in their legal bid to reverse a Supreme Court of Appeal judgement that upgraded his original conviction from culpable homicide — the equivalent of manslaughter — to murder.The original trial judge Thokozile Masipa is expected to pass a new sentence after hearing arguments from both prosecution and defence.Pistorius faces a minimum 15-year jail term for murder, but his sentence could be reduced due to time already spent in prison and mitigating factors, including his disability.last_img read more

Klopp says City showdown won’t influence Liverpool’s title bid

first_imgJurgen Klopp. PHOTO via @LivEchoLFCEdinburgh, United Kingdom | AFP | Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool’s Community Shield clash with Manchester City on Sunday will have no bearing on their battle for the Premier League title.The two sides will renew the rivalry that saw them take the title race to a tense final day last season.City eventually claimed their second successive Premier League crown by a single point as Liverpool’s bid for a first title since 1990 reached a painful conclusion.Klopp’s men made amends for that angst just weeks later as they beat Tottenham in the Champions League final and the Reds are expected to fight it out with City for the major honours again in the coming campaign.A win against Pep Guardiola’s team at Wembley would be a welcome psychological boost for Liverpool.But, having seen his pre-season plans disrupted by the absence of key players such as Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and keeper Alisson due to the Copa America and African Cup of Nations, Klopp isn’t putting too much stock in the result of the curtain-raiser to the English top-fight season.“For me, it has nothing to do with the rest of the season,” Klopp told reporters.“It’s a game and, even if we only have eight players available, I would like to try to win it.“If we win it, good. Will it have an influence on the season? I don’t think so.“If we lose it, not good. Will it have an influence on the season? No, again, I don’t think so.“We have to prove ourselves during the season, not in one game. If I have to say this would be the statement for the season, I would be really mad.”Klopp admitted he was surprised the Community Shield isn’t taken more seriously in England as he prepares to take part in the match for the first time.“It’s a final. This is the first time that I realised nobody sees it like that to be honest. A ‘curtain-raiser’ is unbelievable,” he said. “We think constantly about the game and how we can prepare for it and then everyone thinks, ‘Oh, do they really play?’“That’s not too cool, but it’s how it is. I don’t know exactly why people play this competition if it means nothing. Why don’t we cancel it then?“In Germany I won it five times, but nobody mentions it. We played every year. The Super Cup, you win it, nobody cares, you lose it and some care.”– ‘Most difficult game’ –Klopp said he would not take risks with his line-up against City, especially with players just returning to training ahead of Wednesday’s friendly against Lyon in Geneva.Mane will remain absent until next week after playing for Senegal in the African Cup of Nations final.But with his side having suffered a 3-0 defeat against Napoli in Scotland on Sunday — a third pre-season loss in four games — Klopp hopes Liverpool avoid another blow to their confidence if they are similarly below par against City.“We saw last year that City is the most difficult game to play during the season,” Klopp added.“We didn’t defend counter-attacks well against Napoli. We lost the ball in the wrong moments and didn’t protect it, and if that happens against City, you don’t have a chance.“You have to be ready. It’s a good test of the things that are there. We have to defend in a good way because if you don’t defend well against City we can get a proper knock.“I don’t think we can expect to play our best game of the season on Sunday.“That’s how it is with pre-season. But it’s about winning a football game. Hopefully we’ll find a way to do that.”Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
