Oscar Pistorius - Full Affidavit

Here is a full copy of the Oscar Pistorius affidavit, which is his account of what happened that night.

It was presented today at his bail hearing. Under South African criminal law, Pistorius needed to show exceptional circumstances warranting his release on bail given the gravity of the crime. However, his lawyers have argued that the crime is being too harshly categorized and for that reason the onus should not be on him to justify his release.
