PRETORIA---Oscar Pistorius must
"pay for what he s done" and his apol-
ogy to the family of the girlfriend he
killed was not sincere, a cousin of
Reeva Steenkamp said yesterday as
testimonies wrapped up.
Kim Martin spoke on the fourth day
of the sentencing portion of the dou-
ble-amputee Olympian s trial. Following
the testimony and final arguments,
Judge Thokozile Masipa will rule on
the punishment for Pistorius after con-
victing him of culpable homicide for
shooting Steenkamp through a toilet
door in his home.
"My lady, I really believe the accused,
Mr. Pistorius, needs to pay for what
he s done," Martin testified before the
"My family are not seeking revenge,"
Martin said. "We just feel to take some-
body s life, to shoot somebody behind
the door who is unarmed, who is harm-
less, needs sufficient punishment."
Just after the court adjourned for
lunch Thursday, Pistorius sister Aimee
became tearful and distraught, telling
her family that a man who was behind
her in the gallery had mouthed an
obscenity at her.
Pistorius brother, Carl, said he would
inform police about the courtroom inci-
Two men who said they were in court
to support Steenkamp s family denied
any involvement in the alleged incident
and accused Aimee Pistorius and her
family of lying.
"They re making up a fabricated
story, same as Oscar s," said Mikey
Schultz, a former boxer and the self-
confessed killer of a businessman in
2005 who escaped prosecution in an
immunity deal with the state. Schultz
has been seen sitting in court this week
with men who have had confrontations
with Pistorius in the past.
The prosecution and defense said
they would deliver final arguments on
Friday, clearing the way for the judge
to deliver the sentence at a date yet to
Pistorius was acquitted of murder
for the Feb. 14, 2013 killing and found
guilty of the lesser crime of negligent
killing. Masipa has wide latitude when
deciding on a sentence for culpable
homicide, and could order a suspended
sentence and a fine, house arrest, or
send him to prison for up to 15 years.
Defense lawyers have argued for a
sentence of three years of house arrest
with community service.
In the first part of the sentencing
hearing, they called a psychologist and
social workers, who said that Pistorius
should not go to prison because of his
ongoing emotional suffering.
They also said his disability as a dou-
ble amputee who needs prosthetic legs
would leave him vulnerable in jail.
Martin, the cousin, said a prison sen-
tence would be appropriate for Pistorius
and that she understood the rehabil-
itation program in jail to be humane
and dignified, contrary to allegations
by one of the social workers who tes-
tified for the defense.
In her sometimes emotional testi-
mony, Martin said many people had
suffered because of Pistorius, including
his own family, and that a sentence
that excludes jail time would encourage
the athlete to "feel within himself that
what he s done is all right."
Zach Modise, the acting national
commissioner for correctional services,
testified after Martin, saying that the
South African prison system compared
favorably with prisons he had visited
in Britain and the United States.
He acknowledged problems such as
overcrowding and gang activity, but
said officials had made progress in com-
batting those problems and that some
prison facilities can cater to disabled
criminals, including Pistorius.
"We will be able to accomodate him,"
Modise said. The athlete would be
housed in the hospital section of a Pre-
toria prison, he said.
However, defence lawyer Barry Roux
referred to reports of an increase in
alleged torture in South Africa s prison
system. He also said an imprisoned
gang leader alleged that Pistorius would
be under threat if he is incarcerated;
Modise said he was not aware of any
Chief prosecutor Gerrie Nel has
described defense calls for a house
arrest sentence as "shockingly inap-
propriate" and wants Pistorius to be
sent to prison.
Tension flared briefly during the court
session when Roux suggested Nel was
trying to place purported facts on the
record rather than asking questions of
"I think Mr Nel must just take the
oath because he s giving evidence,"
Roux said, drawing laughter from the
gallery. Nel responded that it wasn t
funny. "I could make the same sarcastic
remark but I decided not to," he said.
Judge Masipa later cautioned Roux,
saying he could object but had not done
Yesterday s proceedings started on a
light note. Nel congratulated Masipa
on her 67th birthday and people in the
courtroom applauded. (AP)
