Pretoria - A charge of possession of unlicensed ammunition
will be added to athlete Oscar Pistorius's murder docket, the Pretoria
Magistrate's Court heard on Wednesday.
This was after rounds for a .38 special firearm were found
in a safe in Pistorius's room while police investigated the shooting of his
girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.
Investigating officer Hilton Botha said Pistorius had a
licence for a 9mm pistol.
This was the firearm mentioned in Pistorius's affidavit on
Tuesday when he said he shot Steenkamp.
Steenkamp was shot dead in the early hours of 14 February in
a bathroom in Pistorius's home.
Phones not used
The State is refuting his affidavit that he thought there
was a burglar in the bathroom when he fired four shots - three of which hit
Answering State prosecutor Gerrie Nel, Botha said there were
four shots through the bathroom door, and four cartridges found on the floor.
One projectile hit a wall.
Botha said that when police arrived, they found two
Blackberry phones in Pistorius's room, and two iPhones in the bathroom. Botha
said the phones had not been used "in months".
In his affidavit Pistorius said he had called Netcare
emergency services but Botha said these phones had not been used.
The court then adjourned so that a diagram of the bathroom
could be displayed in the court.
This was part of Nel's argument in opposition to the
granting of bail.
