A video of the paralympic athlete re-enacting the night he shot his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, airs on Australia’s Channel Seven. The video was filmed by The Evidence Room, a US company specializing in forensic animation of crime scenes, which was engaged by the athlete’s defense team. Brian Webber, a member of the defense team, accuses Channel Seven of obtaining the footage illegally while claiming that The Evidence Room breached their non-disclosure agreement.
For the family, the airing of this footage constitutes a staggering breach of trust and an invasion of the family’s privacy. It has come to our attention that Channel Seven purchased this footage unlawfully. In addition, during our engagement with Channel Seven, we received an undertaking that they would not air any of the material before the end of the trial.
