Carl Pistorius's charges dropped

Johannesburg - The National Prosecuting Authority could have a lawsuit on their hands. Today, charges against Carl Pistorius were dropped and he was acquitted of reckless and inconsiderate driving.

The charges stemmed from a 2008 road accident between Pistorius and motorbike rider Marietjie Barnard, which resulted in Barnard's death.

The State admitted it could not prove that the accident had caused Barnard’s death, after insisting they had more than enough evidence to prove he was guilty of culpable homicide.


But, a month after the case reached the court roll, Pistorius is a free man.

He told eNCA today that he was not angry at the NPA, but that didn't mean he wasn't going to investigate a case of wrongful prosecution.

Watch: eNCA reporter Karyn Maughan speaks to Carl Pistorius and the NPA about the case.
