Pistorius's psychiatric report ready
It’s understood Oscar Pistorius’s psychiatric report will be ready for collection at Weskoppies today.
JOHANNESBURG - Eyewitness News understands murder accused Oscar Pistorius's psychiatric report will be ready for collection at the Weskoppies psychiatric hospital today, ahead of the trial which resumes on Monday.
Pistorius shot and killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day a year ago.
While he's argued it was an accident, the state believes he murdered her in a fit of rage.
A panel of three psychiatrists and a psychologist observed, tested and evaluated Pistorius's mental health on and off for nearly four weeks.
A report with their findings will be ready for collection later today.
A senior police official close to the investigation told Eyewitness News it was scheduled to be completed on Thursday.
He said Pistorius reported to the facility on every occasion the panel of experts required him to be there, with no incidents with the patient.
It's unclear whether this report will be read in to the record on Monday, when it will be officially submitted as an exhibit in the trial.
Defence advocate Barry Roux has indicated he will call three more witnesses before closing his case.
