In an exclusive interview with The Mail on Sunday, Adam Steenkamp (left) brands Oscar Pistorius an outright killer. He says his whole family has been left heartbroken and betrayed by the South African court.He brands Pistorius an outright killer who should have been found guilty of deliberate murder after blasting gunshots through the door of the toilet where his girlfriend Reeva was cowering.
And he condemns the athlete’s courtroom histrionics as a ‘grotesque pantomime’.
‘In my heart I know he has got away with it. He has got away with murder,’ says Adam, who is now based in Britain with his wife and children. I don’t understand the logic of acquitting someone of murder who fires four rounds into a very small toilet cubicle. It is not the action of someone not intending to kill.’
The life of his sister had been taken, he said, and Pistorius was responsible. Speaking from his home in Suffolk, Adam, a 39-year-old IT consultant, said he was struggling to contain his emotions in the face of such trauma.
