Pistorius will get fair trial, says lawyer who taught judge

March 3rd, 2014
03:09 PM ET

By Mick Krever, CNN

Oscar Pistorius, South African Olympian facing murder charges over the death of his girlfriend, will get a fair trial, Mannie Witz, a lawyer who served as teacher to the judge in the case, told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Monday.

“I think it’s very, very important – not only to South Africa, but also for the whole world – to see that we’ve got a very, very good justice system,” Witz said from Pretoria, where Pistorius’ trial began Monday.

Pistorius faces one charge of premeditated murder and a firearms charge associated with Steenkamp's killing, as well as two separate gun indictments from 2012.

“Knowing the judge in this particular matter, I think that should ensure that he does get a fair trial,” Witz said. “She follows the rules, she follows the procedure, and I’ve got no doubt that in regards to all the parties – they’re very experienced, they’re very, very well-versed experienced.”

    I'm curious as to how she felt about the US invading Libya. Did Abbey speak out against about that invasion of that sovereign nation.There seems to be a double standard when it comes to invasions and the abuser of basic human rights.

    Yes, by all means Pistorius should get a fair trail. After which they should hang him!

    Throughout this great scheme of things you actually get a B+ with regard to effort. Exactly where you actually confused everybody ended up being in your facts. As it is said, the devil is in the details... And it could not be much more accurate in this article. Having said that, permit me reveal to you what did deliver the results. Your authoring is actually pretty persuasive and that is possibly why I am making the effort to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, while I can certainly notice the leaps in reasoning you make, I am not really confident of just how you appear to unite your points which produce the actual final result. For right now I will yield to your issue but trust in the foreseeable future you link the dots much better.

    Its like you read my thoughts! You seem to grasp a lot approximately this, like you wrote the e-book in it or something.
    I believe that you simply can do with a few
    percent to power the message house a bit, but other than that,
    this is great blog. A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.
