White Horse by Nick van der Leek and Lisa Wilson
11 Jul 2016
White Horse covers the three days of unprecedented testimony in the Oscar Pistorius sentencing phase, witnessed first-hand by Nick van der Leek, who was accredited for the trial.
Besides ground-breaking analysis and insights not only beyond the media narrative, but going much further than the court’s “intruder” narrative as well, the author – with a background in law – was also part of a “secret meeting” with the prosecution, regarding a “rogue witness”.
The authors interrogate defense and prosecution witnesses in-depth; once again this is at a level of investigative reporting missing from the media narrative.
The authors uncover a major insight into the forensics of the crime scene after procuring three as yet unseen images of Reeva Steenkamp directly from the Judge’s Clerk subsequent to the sentencing phase.
