Gerrie Nel, State prosecutor, will today cross-examine Petrus van Zyl, Oscar Pistorius’ manager in the sentencing proceedings.
Van Zyl on Monday told the court about Pistorius’ charities involvements and his plans to retire in the next three years.
Van Zyl said he was negotiating new contracts for Pistorius, a week before the athlete shot Reeva Steenkamp.
Nel asked for an early adjournment to go over the documents Van Zyl handed to the court.
Nel on Monday tried to discredit two of the witnesses called by Pistorius’s defence.
Barry Roux, for Pistorius, called three witnesses on Monday – the athlete’s psychologist Dr Lore Hartzenberg, Van Zyl, and correctional services department social worker Mashaba Joel Maringa.
On September 12, Judge Thokozile Masipa found the Paralympian not guilty of murdering Steenkamp in his Pretoria townhouse on Valentine’s Day last year, but convicted him of culpable homicide.
