South Africa: Prosecutor wants Oscar Pistorius is mentally evaluated

This Tuesday, after the defence has called to the stand an expert who testified that the Paralympic athlete suffers from a severe anxiety disorder, the Prosecutor Gerrie Nel has asked the Court that Pistorius was admitted in a hospital for 30 days to make a psychiatric evaluation.

"Your honor, it's an undeniable fact that the Defense decided to call Dr. Vorster at the last minute. There is no previous indication that Dr. Vorster had proven there was no psychiatric illness that affects the accused, "said the Prosecutor.

With the submission of the application, Gerrie Nel tries to prevent defense to convince the jury to be condescending with Pistorius bearing in mind that the supposed mental illness has affected their actions.

Oscar Pistorius, 27 years, claims he accidentally killed his girlfriend, to confuse her with a thief hiding in the bathroom.
