If you had been in a deep sleep for the last week, and had awoken to immediately dip into the action of Courtroom C at the Pretoria Magistrates Court on Wednesday, it’s likely that you would have assumed that what was going on was a full-scale criminal trial. Instead, it was only the continuing bail hearing for murder-accused Oscar Pistorius. But in terms of both the evidentiary scope and the passionate interest of the public, it was as if occasionally everyone forgot they weren’t in full trial yet. By REBECCA DAVIS.
