Oscar Pistorius had no mental illness

The court-appointed psychiatric team comprising three psychiatrists and one psychologist have concluded after a 30 day evaluation that Oscar Pistorius suffered from no mental illness or defect that would have compromised his actions on the night he gunned down girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. They have dismissed the diagnosis by Dr Merryll Vorster, a psychiatrist called by the defence to evaluate Pistorius, that he was suffering from Generalised Anxiety Disorder which might have affected his actions on the night.
