Pretoria - Oscar Pistorius' bail application in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court has been postponed to Friday for further argument.
The court heard prosecutor Gerrie Nel submitting on Thursday it wasn't a coincidence that the people who gave statements following Reeva Steenkamps death said they heard screams and arguments.
He said it was also not disputed that Pistorius discharged a gun at Tashas restaurant in Johannesburg and “somebody else took the blame”.
“That is the real person we are dealing with here,” said Nel.
Nel was arguing there were no exceptional circumstances for Magistrate Desmond Nair to grant Pistorius bail.
Referring to a threat Pistorius made about “breaking someone's legs” he said: “What else are threats and a murder but prone to violence?”
The application will continue at 10am on Friday. - Sapa
