Blackburn Citizen: Pistorius trial to be broadcast Pistorius trial to be broadcast

A JUDGE in South Africa has ruled that television stations can broadcast parts of Oscar Pistorius' murder trial live, but with restrictions on witness testimonies.

Gauteng High Court Judge Dunstan Mlambo ruled that three cameras will be allowed to capture images of the case, in which the Olympic athlete is accused of killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.

Miss Steenkamp’s mother June was brought up in Blackburn and will be attending the trial.

Pistorius' defence lawyers had opposed any of the trial being broadcast saying it would harm his chances of a fair trial.
