TV channel apologizes for Pistorius witness image
News channel eNCA says it used the picture of state witness Michelle Burger in a broadcast while she was giving testimony Tuesday. The channel says the photo was "sourced" from the website of the University of Pretoria, where Burger works as a lecturer.
It said it was a "bad judgment call" to use the photo and apologized to the court, the parties and to Burger for an "unfortunate incident."
A judge ruled last week that images of some witnesses could not be shown if they objected, as Burger did. The trial judge ordered an investigation.
