Johannesburg - Murder-accused Paralympian Oscar Pistorius's latest tweets were not in contempt of court, a media lawyer said on Monday.
“There is no prohibition on Oscar making public statements, whether via Twitter or otherwise,” Dario Milo said.
“He is perfectly entitled to do so and there can be no suggestion that he is in contempt of court. In any event, his comments on Twitter have nothing at all to do with the case.”
Pistorius, who is on trial for the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, on Sunday tweeted a Bible verse, a collage of pictures of his humanitarian work, and an extract from Viktor Frankl's book “Man's Search for Meaning”.
