Vinesh Moonoo Replaces Hilton Botha As Main Detective In Henke’s Pistorius son’s Case.
The lead detective in the Oscar Pistorius murder case is facing attempted murder charges for setting on fire a minibus with many passengers.
Hilton Botha, who took the position against Pistorius at the Paralympic and Olympic track star’s financial guarantee hearing earlier this week, is suitable to come out before a judge in May over the 2011 shooting.
A police officer said:
Botha and two other policemen allegedly tried to stop a minibus taxi with seven people. They fired shots.
It was uncertain why the accusations were restored not in favor of Botha, or how the latest coil in Pistorius’s sensational four-day bail trial will have an effect on the athlete’s chances of securing freedom from detention pending his trial.
The charges against Botha were temporarily withdrawn but reinstated on February 4 – 10 days before the shooting of 29-year-old model and law graduate Reeva Steenkamp in a locked bathroom at Pistorius’s Pretoria home, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said:
The decision to reinstate was taken on February 4, way before the issue of Pistorius came to light or the murder of Reeva was committed. It’s completely unrelated to this trial.
Malila said in regards Botha:
At this stage there are no plans to take him off the Pistorius case.
Henke’s son faces life in jail if convicted of the premeditated assassinate of Steenkamp in the early hours of Valentine’s Day.
Oscar Pistorius’s description of events – that he fired into the toilet door in a blind terror thinking a burglar was hanging about behind it – was believable.
The defence’s advantage (Roux) said:
The poor quality of evidence presented by the chief investigating officer exposed disastrous shortcomings in the state’s case.
As the community point of view has swung back and forth, schoolchildren have come to blows in playgrounds over the athlete’s innocence or guilt, and on Thursday “Hilton Botha” was a hot topic on Twitter in South Africa.
We talk about the case every day. It’s all over the news. You can’t ignore it.
He must face his music but the thing is, here in South Africa, criminals have so many rights.
Bring someone from outside to sort out this mess.
The whole justice system needs an overhaul.
Henke added his heart goes out to Miss Steenkamp’s family.
He has spoken about his son’s capture for the alleged killing of girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, saying his son is “sad at the moment”.
Police had been called before to the home of Pistorius’ due to events “of a domestic nature”, and said they were very surprised over media reports.
Henke said over this:
I don’t know nothing. It will be extremely obnoxious and rude to speculate. I don’t know the facts.
