    Masipa cleared the athlete of murdering his model girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, instead finding him guilty of culpable homicide and of one firearm-related charge.

Despite finding the athlete was a “very poor witness”, Masipa accepted that Pistorius’s version – that he genuinely believed there was an intruder in his house – could reasonably possibly be true, which is all that was necessary for an acquittal on murder. Masipa’s verdict has created a ruckus for a number of reasons, with the most common criticism relating to her application of dolus eventualis.
