Judge bans reporting on Pistorius tests

In a surprise ruling, Judge Thokozile Masipa  declared that no details of the two reports handed in to court following Pistorius’s psychiatric observation may be reported on other than the brief findings read out in court.

In a bizarre ruling, the judge has allowed all tweets and reports that happened before  3.05pm today to remain, but any that are published after this will result in the publication and journalist being in contempt of court.

It is reported that law firm Webber Wentzel is planning to bring an urgent application to challenge this decision.
