She was seen with her father and brother Carl during her brother’s first court appearance on Friday, February 16 and she was standing close to her uncle Arnold.
“We are in a state of total shock — firstly about the tragic death of Reeva who we had all got to know well and care for deeply. Oscar — as you can imagine — is also numb with shock as well as grief. We as a family are also battling to come to terms with him being charged with murder.
“After consulting with legal representatives we deeply regret the allegation of pre-meditated murder. We have no doubt there is no substance to the allegation and that the State’s own case, including its own forensic evidence, strongly refutes any possibility of a pre-meditated murder — or indeed any murder at all.”
Aimee burst into tears at one point.
