The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) on Tuesday dismissed a complaint against State prosecutor Gerrie Nel.
Eyewitness News reports that a complaint was laid against Nel relating to his cross-examination of murder-accused Oscar Pistorius.
Pistorius is on trial for the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp.
Last week, the SAHRC confirmed that a lawyer had lodged the complaint, saying that Nel was infringing on Pistrorius’s human rights by calling him a liar.
Nel has been relentless in his cross-examination of Pistorius and has repeatedly called into question the athlete’s version of events on the night he shot and killed Steenkamp.
The commission said that it could not intervene in a matter that was currently before a judiciary body.
