Arnold Pistorius (pictured) said Saturday that he is confident South Africa’s own evidence would strongly refute the charge of murder against his son Oscar Pistorius, the double amputee Olympian known as “Blade Runner” who is accused of the Valentine’s Day murder of his girlfriend.
“After consulting with legal representatives, we deeply regret the allegation of premeditated murder,” Arnold Pistorius told the Associated Press. “We have no doubt there is no substance to the allegation and that the state’s own case, including its own forensic evidence, strongly refutes any possibility of a premeditated murder or murder as such.”
Oscar’s younger sister Aimee (also pictured) and his lawyers visited the Brooklyn police station in Pretoria, where the athlete is being held. His younger sister Aimee, who stood alongside Arnold Pistorius when he made his statement, also was at the police station later.
