About the Trial of Oscar Pistorius The trial of Oscar Pistorius is taking place in South Africa. It started on Monday 3 March 2014. On the first day of the bail hearing, Magistrate Nair ruled that for the purposes of the bail hearing Pistorius was charged with a Schedule 6 criminal offence, which relates to serious crimes including premeditated murder and requires exceptional circumstances for release on bail. The prosecutor's opening statement noted that the murder case against Pistorius is based largely on circumstantial evidence, as there were no eyewitnesses to the incident. Pistorius pleaded not guilty to all the charges against him, including murder and three gun-related charges. Contract Rules
