One Pistorius brother is free of charges, acquitted Tuesday of culpable homicide in the death of a woman in a road accident. The famous younger brother, Olympic double-amputee Oscar Pistorius, still must face his day in court for shooting and killing his girlfriend.
"We have lost the case," Mr. Simasiku said, adding that the National Prosecution Authority will take no further action.
"I believe that despite the fact that the case got the media interest because of the younger brother's case in Pretoria, this case still ran its own course according to its own merit," Mr. Simasiku told The Associated Press.
